More than 275 million vehicles are on the EU’s roads today, with older taxis, delivery vans and buses impairing urban air quality. The EU-funded VERA project will develop, optimise and demonstrate innovative tailpipe retrofit solutions to address particle and NOx emissions, particularly considering NH3 emissions.
The project will ensure system adaptability with a central development methodology, allowing fast and accurate optimisation for each application. Also, VERA will design and demonstrate brake retrofit solutions, applicable both as first installation on new vehicles as well as replacement parts. The combination of filtration systems with innovative discs and pads aims at maximum brake emission reduction of road vehicles, while particles from metro applications will be addressed with a filtration system and properly machined pads.
