Argonne helps China create cleaner Beijing for 2008 Olympics
Date:10/9/2007

anding the interrelationships among performance, fuel economy and emissions and for the design of new, advanced-technology vehicles.

"China is making important progress in developing cleaner vehicles," said Johnson. "Don't be surprised if China starts meeting some fairly impressive standards in terms of renewable energy and automotive technology."

Much of Argonne's transportation research is funded by DOE's FreedomCAR and Vehicle Technologies Program in the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy which invests in a diverse portfolio of transportation technologies to provide efficient, clean and renewable energy. Under their sponsorship, Argonne's is developing more energy efficient and environmentally friendly transportation technologies designed to use less petroleum and lower emissions. The long-term aim is to develop "leap frog" technologies that will enhance our energy security, while lowering costs and reducing the impact on the environment.

In another study, Argonne has been working with leading institutions, including the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the University of Tennessee, Tsinghua University, Peking University and the Chinese Academy of Sciences to improve the air quality of Beijing and ensure a healthy atmosphere for athletes and spectators at the 2008 Summer Olympics.

The team has researched and modeled the local and regional contributors to Beijing's air quality, leading to a greater understanding of regional air quality management and development of new emission control strategies. The modeling study has been widely cited by Chinese policy makers, including the Beijing mayor, in requesting the government to implement unprecedented regional control programs to ensure that the air quality goals for 2008 will be met in Beijing.
