01 Portable Emissions Measurement System (PEMS)

Environmental, Air Quality, Regulation, Product Development and Marketing:
Emissions and Fuel Consumption Measurement with Portable Emissions
Measurement Systems (PEMS).

 

We measure fuel consumption and emissions to global regulatory standards across a wide range of fuels and technologies on applications from light vehicles to the largest of mining equipment, locomotives and marine vessels.

 

About PEMS

 

  • ABMARC has Australia’s only Portable Emissions Measurement system complying with US EPA 1065 2007, EC 595 2009 and Regulation 49.
  • Laboratory quality data and repeatability achieved on-site and in the field.
  • True portability and measurement of vehicles and engines under mobile or stationary conditions. ABMARC can test anywhere in Australia or overseas.
  • PEMS measures gaseous emissions [THC, CH4, NO, NO2, CO, CO2], particulates [by gravimetric measurement with second by second data or particulate number] and fuel consumption.

 

We utilise the World’s most trusted brand in PEMS that enables us to achieve laboratory quality data, accuracy and repeatability in the field from 0.5%.

Key Applications

 

Regulatory Testing and Compliance

Testing compliant with NTE, RDE and ISC as required in the USA and Europe under US EPA 1065 2007 and EC 595 2009.

 

Emissions Reduction Fund (ERF)
Quantify emissions reduction for application to the ERF.

 

Air Quality Improvement and Policy Development

Informed policy development or fleet emissions reduction solutions.

 

Product Development and New Technologies

Product or application development or proof of concept for new technologies.

 

Benchmarking

Measuring fuel economy or emissions performance against competitors.

 

Portable Activity Monitoring System (PAMS)

Combine PEMS data with PAMS for air quality modelling or analysis of fleet activity, including engine load, fuel consumption, GPS location, environmental conditions, engine condition, operator driving behaviour.

 

Performance Measurement and Fuel Consumption

From PEMS, PAMS or direct measurement with repeatability to 0.01%.

 

Examples

 

New Diesel Fuel Blend
Evidence for marketing purposes to demonstrate benefits a product, such as
increased engine power, improved fuel consumption and reduced emissions.

 

All fuels and technologies can be measured, including: petrol, Natural gas – LPG, LNG, CNG, biofuels and hybrid.


Exhaust Emissions System to Reduce
Particulates

Verifying the effectiveness and proving the new technology with accurate real-world data, and benchmarking the product against competitors and other available technologies or legislated limits.

 

Policy or Regulation Development for Air Quality
Evidence based policy or regulation development to measure and quantify
the benefits of proposed strategies - to find the best cost or emissions reduction
strategy.

 

Driver Behaviour
Using Activity Monitoring to assess and model the variance in vehicle performance, emissions and fuel economy between drivers and across a fleet. Useful for estimating and reducing annual running costs of vehicles for fleets.
