Synopsis: This book evaluates the current worldwide state of knowledge about the interrelationship between emissions and air quality. This study describes the contribution of passenger car and commercial vehicle traffic to local and global emission situations, and the consequences for the environment. With the objective of questioning the public perception that air pollution is almost exclusively caused by road traffic, the authors show that the contribution of road traffic to emissions with global air quality effects is very small. Lenz and Cozzarini present statistics such as: Worldwide passenger car and commercial vehicle traffic contribute 0.5 per cent to total carbon dioxide emissions Methane emissions from road traffic are so marginal that their contribution to the greenhouse effect can be disregarded Passenger car and heavy-duty vehicle traffic each contribute 1.6 per cent to the total anthropogenic emissions of nitrous oxide Road traffic contributes only about 1 per cent to non-methane hydrocarbon emissions. 'Emissions and Air Quality' also highlights the important role that modified fuels can play in reducing particulate matter emissions. The book concludes by pointing out that emission reduction is not solely a technical challenge for the automobile and oil industries, but that an important contribution can also be made by vehicle users and intelligent traffic management. Chapters: The Basics Emissions and Atmospheric Concentrations of Substances with Global Effects Exhaust Emission Components with Local and Regional Effects Possible Ways to Influence Emissions from Road Traffic - Emission Scenarios. The authors point out that sources such as wetlands, forests, grasslands, and oceans, as well as fertilizers, wet rice agriculture and stock farming, are responsible for the greatest amount of emissions, and that road traffic emissions already meet existing air quality demands in many cases.
