IGES uses three main approaches to equitably and sustainably reduce transport emissions: Measurement, Reporting and Verification (MRV) of vehicle emissions; implementing cost-effective technological solutions that provide co-benefits; and promoting tomorrow’s innovative low-carbon technologies today.
Monitoring Reporting and Verification (MRV)
We employ unique Remote Emission Monitoring technologies that provide fast, reliable and non-intrusive measurement of vehicle emissions, identifying pollution hot spots. These technologies can monitor up to 5,000 vehicles a day, providing detailed emission records for each vehicle. Data are analysed and verified by certified laboratories, showing fleet average emissions and emission distribution according to vehicle type and unique vehicle identity. These technologies have led to direct policy interventions in Spain and the European Union.
Reducing Emissions Today!
Based on MRV identification of the most polluting vehicles, cost-effective, efficient solutions are established. IGES applies mitigation actions and retrofit technologies, targeting existing vehicle fleets to provide remedial actions NOW. For example, the Carbon Decomposition Catalyst™ reduces emissions of black carbon, particulate matter, problematic air pollutants and regulated greenhouse gases. This unique, cost-effective technology is simply fitted onto a range of vehicles, including two-wheelers, cars, trucks and buses. It offers a competitively-priced, effective and efficient alternative to existing vehicle pollution abatement technologies, with significant, measurable and verifiable emission reductions.
Tomorrow Today – Promoting Technological Innovations
Many future low-carbon technologies require substantive investments in infrastructure. IGES provides innovative transitional technologies, with little or no additional infrastructure requirements. These technologies allow for business-as-usual operation of the transport system, resolving many problems at point of combustion. Results have been robustly tested in real-world commercial operations. These innovative technological solutions pave the road for a sustainable, low-carbon transport future.
