Delphi introduces updated emissions standards booklet

Delphi recently issued its Worldwide Emissions Standards booklets to provide easy-to-read, conveniently organized summaries of emissions regulations from around the world.

The guides contain summaries of exhaust emissions standards and additional emissions related requirements as well as additional information regarding on-board diagnostics (OBD), fuels, evaporative emissions standards and more.

Many nations are adapting their regulations to help achieve a reduction of CO2 emissions. The new booklet comprehends this important evolution. It also includes information about the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicle Emissions Test Procedure (WLTP), which could be used in next levels of CO2 requirements.

"Keeping up with the scope and complexity of country specific emissions standards can be challenging for vehicle and engine manufacturers," said Sebastian Schilling, engineering director, gasoline engine management systems (EMS) and powertrain products Europe, Delphi Powertrain Systems. "But Delphi's handy guides summarize those requirements so busy industry professionals can easily access the information they need."

There are two separate volumes of the Delphi Worldwide Emissions Standards booklets. One contains summaries of passenger car, light duty truck and motorcycle regulations, while a companion booklet provides a synopsis of regulations for heavy duty and off-highway commercial vehicles. The 2012-13 edition of the passenger vehicle and motorcycle emissions standards booklet is available now. An updated booklet with commercial vehicle standards will be published later this year. Electronic editions of both Delphi Worldwide Emissions Standards brochures are available on Printed copies of the booklets are also available.

The reference brochures were first published in 1992, and through the years have helped vehicle and engine manufacturers and other industry professionals keep up with ever increasing complex and evolving emissions standards.
