Emission forecasts

The Institute focuses with the compilation of emission calculations and consequently also with forecasts since the introduction of emissions legislation. The workable, institute-own prediction tool "PROVEM" is available for roadside emissions for more than 2 decades. The step by step improved calculation model was adjusted for each of the latest legislation and a variety of legally limited and not limited emissions. It takes into account emission factors for real vehicle traffic, which were determined in an international consensus.

Advantage of this institution-own calculation procedure is complete understanding of the model, and thus in all levels of calculation and assumptions. There is no "black box", as purchased programs have. The program has a high degree of flexibility and can be adapted to customer-specific questions.

The spectrum ranges from

  • a general government forecast for road transport considering different scenarios,
  • emission development of municipal or corporate vehicle fleets,
  • the impact of regional and local traffic management measures, garage buildings or speed limits, up to
  • analysis of a single road section. These calculations can be differentiated even after

  • vehicle age,
  • propulsion concepts or
  • loading condition, as well as  

  • climatic factors,
  • altitude, or
  • conditions of use (start frequency, driving distances per start, ...) and much more.

In addition, the results can be extended to non-road equipment, construction equipment, agricultural machinery and other equipment.

In the context of interdisciplinary collaboration a nationwide as well as global balance could be presented involving all issuers (domestic, industrial, commercial, energy, Disposal, agriculture ...), to quantify the influences of international agreements e.g. concerning greenhouse gas development.
