Selected Projects


EULES project started

In December 2014 the new EULES project started. Its main objective is to prepare the legal and technical background for proposing a future voluntary EU low emission standard (EULES) for passenger cars that will deliver real-world emission levels below the most stringent current emission limits. These emission levels will have to be verified by measuring the vehicle according to the measurement protocol foreseen in the framework of the Real Drive Emissions (RDE) regulations. The main requirements of the project are:

  1. assess the market response to such a voluntary standard, and
  2. verify and demonstrate whether state-of-the-art Euro 6 cars can reach RDE levels which are below the Euro 6 emission limit values, by further optimization of their emission control systems.

The project is sponsored by European Commission, DG Environment, from December 2014 to October 2015 and the consortium consists of EMISIA, IIASA, ICCT, AVL, and Open Evidence.

Eurostat project started

In December 2014 a new project on emissions from rail and inland waterways started. The main objective is to support Eurostat in identifying and evaluating suitable data and methods for assessing the impact of railway and inland waterways transport on GHG emissions. To this aim, the main requirements of the project are:

  1. assessment of the policy needs for statistical information on CO2 emissions by the rail and inland waterways transport sectors;
  2. study and evaluation of methods and data used for the estimation of CO2 emissions by the rail and inland waterways transport sectors;
  3. recommendation of suitable methods to be used by Eurostat;
  4. feasibility study of extending Eurostat’s rail and inland waterways transport statistics system to accommodate the additional data needed for emission estimation; and
  5. extension of the published statistics for emissions by the rail and inland waterways transport sectors.

The project is sponsored by the European Commission - Eurostat, from December 2014 to June 2015 and the consortium consists of EMISIA, Infras, and IVL.




BAT project completed

BAT was a project funded by the European Commission (DG ENV) from December 2013 to December 2014 and its aim was the identification and evaluation of ‘Best Available Techniques’ (BAT) to control and reduce emissions from mobile sources. The project provided the technical background in order to update the Guidance Document supporting the implementation of the 1999 Gothenburg Protocol of the UNECE LRTAP Convention.

  • Technical Report (descriptions, assessment, and recommendations of Best Available Techniques per mobile source category)
  • Guidance Document (summary of the main conclusions)
  • Policy Recommendations

The final report of the project is available here...

Final version of DIONE available

Development of a tool for assessing the fleet-level impacts of new road transport technologies, with emphasis in electromobility (DIONE).

The final version of the DIONE model along with the delivered documents are now available.

DIONE was a project funded by the European Commission (JRC) from November 2013 to February 2015 to develop a software fleet-impact assessment tool with which scenarios can be built to evaluate new policies, develop alternative approaches and assess the impacts of technological changes in the vehicle fleets and fuels in Europe.

The model contains data from 1990 to 2050 for the whole EU28 and also for Iceland, Norway, Switzerland, Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia and Turkey and can address impacts at a European, national or user-defined level. It includes a variety of electromobility and alternative vehicle technologies and can simulate the impact of scenarios on CO2, energy/fuel consumption and other pollutant emissions at a WtW level, as well as cost/benefit implications.



COPERT Australia


Copert Australia


COPERT Australia is a spin-off that has been jointly developed by the Department of Science, Information Technology and Innovation (DSITI) in Queensland, Australia and Emisia. The software has been designed specifically for Australian conditions and has used comprehensive empirical data from major Australian emission testing programs. Some significant modifications were made to the software such as addition of SUVs as a new vehicle class and an explicit spatial resolution of 100m for hot running emission factors.
COPERT software can be downloaded at:

A nationally consistent motor vehicle emission inventory (MVEI) is an important element of developing strategies to manage emissions and improve air quality. It facilitates meaningful comparisons of emissions between jurisdictions and with other sources. In order to address this gap, the Australian Government Department of the Environment commissioned a project in 2014 to develop a national MVEI for each Australian state and territory, using COPERT Australia. The final report is publicly available on Importantly, default COPERT Australia input files are available for each individual Australian state and territory free of charge. These COPERT input files are available on request from the NPI team ( of the Australian Government Department of the Environment and will allow COPERT Australia users to conduct more detailed analyses to address specific policy or research questions or to develop motor vehicle emission factors for local area or road level impact assessments.
