Abstract

The contribution of the road transport sector to local air pollutants is significant in urban areas. Also, road transport has been a major source of greenhouse gases in OECD countries. In Australia, road transport was responsible for 12.9% of total national greenhouse gas emissions in 2000. This paper aims at determining the criteria air pollutants and greenhouse gas emissions from the road transport sector in Australia. Transport activities are projected from a bottom-up approach for a modeling period from 2000 to 2025. Instead of using standard drive cycle emission factors, attempts have been made to quantify real-world on-road emissions. Results have been compared with the findings from e..
