State, UH teaming up to reduce (ob)noxious air emissions
Date:3/6/2008

rying those technologies on 100 vehicles, this enabled the city of Houston to avoid additional investment and unacceptable results, said Charles Rooks, director of the facility and co-principal investigator for the project.

The facility is now working with the city to improve the two tested technologies and to evaluate additional technologies for the city of Houston and Texas.

Knowledge we gain from testing technologies will result in our being able to advise fleet operators across the state how to effectively implement these technologies and thus, reduce emissions by retrofitting vehicles, Harold said.

The UH center is one of only a handful in the nation that is capable of testing heavy-duty diesel vehicles, which is key to determining if technologies work in real-world conditions.

The Texas Diesel Testing and Research Center will fulfill the testing area shortage by providing laboratory space for third-party companies from around the state to test their technologies for reducing emissions.

The initial grant of $8.8 million provides funding through August 2009, with an additional $1.5 million possible in future funding for researching, developing and demonstrating emerging technologies.
