Forecast: global 3-wheeler market to grow at CAGR of 13% through 2019

Green Car Congress

The value of the global three-wheeler market will grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 13% during 2014-19, according to a recently published report by TechSci Research, “Global Three Wheeler Market Forecast and Opportunities, 2019”. The introduction of CNG/LPG three-wheelers has revived the global three-wheeler market and significantly increased the acceptability of three-wheelers across many countries, especially in developing nations, the report says.

Analysis finds air-quality justification for CNG vehicle conversion in developing cities, despite negative climate impact

Green Car Congress

An analysis by a team in Bangladesh found large air quality and associated health benefits accruing to the residents of Dhaka (the capital of Bangladesh) as a result of the rapid conversion of the motor vehicle fleet to CNG. As the greenhouse gas impacts (costs or benefits) are much smaller than the health benefits, the conversion of petroleum vehicles to CNG can be justified on the basis of local air pollution benefits alone, they concluded.

Low-lying and other vulnerable countries calling for fast action on non-CO2 global warming pollutants

Green Car Congress

Led by the tiny Pacific island of the Federated States of Micronesia, a growing group of low-lying islands and other vulnerable countries are calling for fast action on the approximately 50% of global warming that is caused by pollutants other than carbon dioxide (CO 2 ). Methane is another potent climate warmer that needs to be targeted; capturing emissions from sources such as landfills and coal mines would benefit the climate system and the gas could then be used as a source of energy.

International study identifies 14 key measures to reduce methane and black carbon emissions; reduction in projected global mean warming of ~0.5 °C by 2050

Green Car Congress

A study by an international team of researchers, led by Drew Shindell of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) in New York City, has identified 14 measures targeting methane and black carbon (BC) emissions that could reduce projected global mean warming ~0.5°C In addition, they darken ice and snow, reducing their reflectivity and hastening global warming. Methane is both a potent greenhouse gas and an important precursor to ground-level ozone.

The average CNG-2S vehicle emitted nearly 3 orders of magnitude (700 times) more PM than the new CNG-4S test vehicle.regulators should also consider following the example of Dhaka, Bangladesh, who banned use of two-stroke vehicles completely.

2018 Environmental Performance Index: Air quality top public health threat

Green Car Congress

In general, high scorers exhibit long-standing commitments to protecting public health, preserving natural resources, and decoupling greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from economic activity. India and Bangladesh come in near the bottom of the rankings, with Burundi, Democratic Republic of the Congo, and Nepal rounding out the bottom five. Seychelles ranks as the most-improved country over the past decade, due largely to its commitment to combating greenhouse gas emissions.

8 development banks commit to provide more than $175B to scale up support for sustainable transport

Green Car Congress

Rapid motorization is creating more congestion, air pollution, traffic accidents and greenhouse gas emissions—especially in developing countries. Global CO 2 emissions from the transport sector are projected to increase nearly 50% by 2030 unless significant changes are adopted. Yet despite the importance of the transport sector, which also directly contributes 5-10% of GDP in most countries, it has been largely neglected in the global sustainable development agenda.

F) rise in global temperatures if the current high emissions of greenhouse gasses continue. The conference, attended by 130 international scientists and policy specialists, is the first to consider the global consequences of climate change beyond 2 degrees Celsius (3.6 °F). This high emissions scenario is based on no action being taken to reduce greenhouse gas emissions significantly, starting in the next few years.
