GNA, Cal-Riverside to Advise on Lowering Vehicle Emissions

Gladstein, Neandross and Associates and the University of California-Riverside’s Bourns College of Engineering Center for Environmental Research and Technology announced the launch of the Low and Zero Emission Readiness Initiative. The collaboration will evaluate real-world economic and environmental benefits of advanced transportation technologies.

The development and use of battery-electric, hydrogen fuel cell, natural gas, propane, renewable fuels, autonomous and connected technologies continues to expand at an accelerated pace. The initiative will support organizations such as trucking fleets, refuse operations, delivery fleets, municipalities, transit agencies and school districts, according to Santa Monica, Calif.-based GNA.

“We are excited to expand upon our capabilities and work side by side with the CE-CERT team to offer laboratory and in-use emissions testing to further validate the performance and durability of vehicles as their use in commercial fleet operations is increased,” Erik Neandross, CEO of GNA, said in a statement.

GNA specializes in market development for low-emissions and alternative-fuel vehicle technologies, infrastructure and fuels for on- and off-road applications.

Cal-Riverside’s research teams are engaged in supporting clean air, sustainable transportation, renewable fuels, renewable energy and smart grids, and climate change mitigation. — Transport Topics
