This Web site is an on-line version of a report written in 2002 that describes the potential environmental impacts of transport-related of emulsified fuels, with emphasis on emulsified bitumen, in marine and fresh waters and specifies the information needed to evaluate and respond to these risks. It also considers relevant literature on transport-related spills of other emulsified fuels
Effectiveness and impact of corporate average fuel economy (CAFE) standards by Committee on the Effectiveness and Impact of Corporate Average Fuel Economy CAFE Standards Staff National Research Council ( )
8 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 973 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The National Academy Press, based in Washington, D.C., presents the full text of a book entitled "Effectiveness and Impact of Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) Standards," authored by the Transportation Research Board and originally published in 2001. The Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) program requires automobile manufacturers to increase the sales-weighted average fuel economy of the passenger car and light-duty truck fleets sold in the United States. The book highlights technologies for improving the fuel economy, the impact of a more fuel efficient fleet, and potential modifications and alternatives to CAFE

Technologies and approaches to reducing the fuel consumption of medium- and heavy-duty vehicles by National Research Council (U.S.) ( )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 849 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Technologies and Approaches to Reducing the Fuel Consumption of Medium- and Heavy-Duty Vehicles evaluates various technologies and methods that could improve the fuel economy of medium- and heavy-duty vehicles, such as tractor-trailers, transit buses, and work trucks. The book also recommends approaches that federal agencies could use to regulate these vehicles' fuel consumption. Currently there are no fuel consumption standards for such vehicles, which account for about 26 percent of the transportation fuel used in the U.S. The miles-per-gallon measure used to regulate the fuel economy of passenger cars. is not appropriate for medium- and heavy-duty vehicles, which are designed above all to carry loads efficiently. Instead, any regulation of medium- and heavy-duty vehicles should use a metric that reflects the efficiency with which a vehicle moves goods or passengers, such as gallons per ton-mile, a unit that reflects the amount of fuel a vehicle would use to carry a ton of goods one mile. This is called load-specific fuel consumption (LSFC). The book estimates the improvements that various technologies could achieve over the next decade in seven vehicle types. For example, using advanced diesel engines in tractor-trailers could lower their fuel consumption by up to 20 percent by 2020, and improved aerodynamics could yield an 11 percent reduction. Hybrid powertrains could lower the fuel consumption of vehicles that stop frequently, such as garbage trucks and transit buses, by as much 35 percent in the same time frame

Reducing climate impacts in the transportation sector by James Spencer Cannon ( )
6 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 480 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
More than 250 experts from around the world gathered at the Asilomar Transportation and Energy Conference in August 2007 to tackle what many agree is the greatest environmental challenge the world faces: climate change. This 11th Biennial Conference, organized under the auspices of the Energy and Alternative Fuels Committees of the U.S. Transportation Research Board, examined key climate change policy issues and strategies to combat climate impacts from the transportation sector, a leading source of greenhouse gas emissions. This book includes chapters by leading presenters at the Asilomar Con
Transportation of hazardous materials : toward a national strategy by National Research Council (U.S.) ( Book )
12 editions published between 1984 and 1988 in English and held by 430 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This report presents a summary of the 1981 Williamsburg Conference which developed recommendations for a comprehensive national strategy to provide safe and efficient transportation of hazardous materials and wastes in the 1980's. The conference covered regulation, training, emergency response, legal responsibilities and implications, technological needs and limitations, and risk assessment. The public interest was a prime concern in all the discussions. Vol. 1 describes TRB's role, gives an overview of the problem, and discusses in detail the findings and recommendations that were developed by the TRB Steering Committee. Vol. 2 covers resource papers, reports of rapporteurs and appendixes
