Proposal for amendment to Global Technical Regulation (GTR) No. 2 (Netherlands)
29 Apr 2014 Working Party Informal Documents Motorcycle Emissions and Fuel Consumption WMTC Measurement procedure for two-wheeled motorcycles equipped with a positive or compression ignition engine with regard to the emission of gaseous pollutants, CO2 emissions and fuel consumption Recently EU-Directive 2013/60 has been introduced in which chapter 5 of EU Directive 97/24 is amended. One of the amendments concerns the introduction of reference fuels E5 (petrol) and B5 (diesel fuel). When stage C in 97/24-5 is being applied for, reference is made to GTR No. 2. In GTR No. 2, however, these reference fuels have not yet been incorporated. This proposal aims to correct this omission by amending the reference fuel specification for alternative C in table 6-1.

Pollution of motor transport highways by particles from tire and road surface wear has a disastrous influence to human health (Russia)
29 Apr 2014 Working Party Informal Documents Non-Exhaust Particle Emissions NEPE During motor transport operation, elevated concentrations of solid particles are formed in the air over the roadway as a result of particulate matter emissions from vehicle exhaust gases, tire and road surface wear particles, background air pollution and other processes. The content of tire and road surface wear particulates in the air over the roadway, as it has been specified in the previously submitted materials of the Russian delegation, amounts up to 60% from the total percentage of solid particles (WP-29-160-39). This paper presents further research into this subject. GRPE-69-0003
