New Emissions Calculator Released!

Argonne National Laboratory Released the Heavy-Duty Vehicle Emissions Calculator  

The Argonne National Laboratory has released the Heavy-Duty Vehicle Emissions Calculator (HDVEC). HDVEC is an easy-to-use web-based application developed to help estimate the vehicle operation nitrogen oxides (NOx), vehicle operation fine particulates (PM2.5), and well-to-wheel greenhouse gases (GHGs) of medium- and heavy-duty vehicles for Clean Diesel Settlement and other funding projects. In addition, it can estimate the cost-effectiveness of the use of funding dollars to reduce these emissions.
