Metro Vancouver conducts research on different ways to reduce emissions in terms of health and environmental benefits, feasbility and costs.
The aim of the AirCare ON-ROAD testing program is to reduce particulate matter emissions from heavy-duty diesel vehicles in the Greater Vancouver area. This report provides a review of the effectiveness of the program and makes recommendations for future strategies.
The GVRD and its partner agencies recognize the importance of heavy-duty vehicle emissions in the airshed, the need to investigate their effects, the means and costs of achieving
This report developed a prioritized list of targeted and focused policies or programs to reduce air emissions from heavy duty diesel vehicles operating in the Canadian Lower Fraser Valley.
This report identifies strategies for mitigating exposure to traffic-related air pollutants in the Lower Fraser Valley with special consideration of vulnerable populations.
On‐road transportation is estimated to contribute approximately one quarter of ‘smog forming pollutants’ in the Lower Fraser Valley. Metro Vancouver wished to obtain an assessment of heavy‐duty vehicle emissions in the region.
The objective of this project is to identify cost-effective ways
to reduce emissions from three sources: non-road heavy-duty diesel equipment, railway locomotives and small passenger ferries.
