Mobility respecting air quality: the Euro 7 standard
This event will be available only in Spanish.
The pollutant emissions of road vehicles offered for sale in European Union countries are controlled by the so-called Euro regulations from 1 to 6 (called I to VI for heavy-duty vehicles). Since their introduction in the 1990s, they have become increasingly restrictive. Recently, the draft of a new Euro 7/VII regulation has been made public, which will cover both light and heavy-duty vehicles.
In the current context of the European Union, with expectations of banning the marketing of internal combustion vehicles from 2035, with the massive investments in electrification that this implies, the question arises as to whether a new, excessively strict Euro 7/VII regulation would make sense now, since it would require the use of economic and human resources, which would result in an increase in the price of vehicles for users of a technology (conventional fuel engines) whose future is in doubt.
The Repsol Foundation Chair of Energy Transition at the Polytechnic University of Madrid and Asepa are organizing this webinar in which they will try to provide answers to these questions by explaining the previous approaches and clarifying what is new in this new Euro 7/VII regulation proposal for light and heavy vehicles. For this purpose, experts will provide the point of view of the various parties involved, such as manufacturers, regulators and certification laboratories for new vehicles.
