What does zero emission mean? Emission legislation has developed since the seventies up to today when the current requirements, and those coming within the next few years, put significant pressure on the Automotive industry to innovate and redesign their fleets in order to comply. Legislation defines the limits for the Automotive industry.
Environmental agencies of national governments define acceptable ambient levels for harmful pollutants in cities and regions.
At Zemission, the internally defined level of acceptable emissions are the ambient levels of a typical urban area. In other words, levels on an entirely different scale compared to those of the Automotive industry.
Emissions on an ambient level are clearly breathable. This is zero emission for Zemission. Running on renweable fuels, green house gas emissions are reduced by approximately 90%.
When optimized for zero emissions:
Emissions from the Zemission burner for diesel and ethanol respectively.
Optimization may take a different aim for a given application. There can therefore be trade-offs between the actual emission levels and issues of size, weight, and cost.
