The Emissions Analytics Team
Emissions Analytics was formed in 2011 to overcome the challenge of finding accurate fuel economy data for passenger cars. Since then the business has grown to include the measurement of tailpipe emissions of CO, CO2, NO, NO2, THCs and PM. It also offers a bespoke PEMS testing service, publishes the go-to guide to on-road vehicle performance – the EQUA Index and offers subscriptions to the largest commercially available emissions database in the world.
