Honda Parts Meet the Standards of the Reduction of Fuel Emissions
by: Jenny McLane
Honda ties up with SELEV, “Study of Extremely Low Emission Vehicles”, a Riverside program hosted by the University of California, which shows the advantage of upgrading the internal combustion engine technology in the reduction of vehicle emissions. Several years ago, this reduction to some level has been conceived impossible but due to the advancements in technology nowadays everything is made possible and tangible to some extent.

Two years ago, this program has been launched primarily for the dwindling environmental condition as the main reason. Among the concerned partners of SELEV are the U.S Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the California Air Resources Board (CARB), and the Manufacturers of Emission Controls Association. The university’s College of Engineering Center for Environmental Research and Technology (CE-CERT) spearheads this innovative research. The study has been endowed by at least $10 million from Ford as a donation. The amount has been of great help for the researchers in their tactics of finding ways of lessening the fuel emissions of the new-generation vehicles so as not to add up with the already degrading air pollution that poses great risk to the people’s health.

Going environment-friendly, no wonder, Honda Motors Corporation continues to launch and introduce to the buying public low-emission vehicles such as that of the latest Honda Accord and the rest of the new-generation vehicles in its fleet. Due to the successful study and promotion of the technology that tests vehicle emissions at lower levels, another milestone in the automotive era poses significant measures and likewise challenges the entire realm of auto manufacturers in the automobile world.

"Ten years ago, nobody thought gasoline ULEVS and SULEVs would be possible," says Dr. Joseph Norbeck, director of CE-CERT. "Now they're becoming common, and it's clear the emissions reductions they offer are significant." This SELEV project allows car engineers, designers, and manufacturers the understanding of the improvement in air quality when new-generation vehicles possess extremely low emissions, thus, give off less dangerous pollutants that could harm the environment and the people therein.
