Con la normalizacion de la prueba CONCAWE
se superaran las desventajas de la prueba MITI II, y se dispondra de un metodo confiable para el ensayo de compuestos volatiles y poco soluble.
concluded that front end volatility is the most important for predicting HWD issues , but this may be because DVPE and T10 are also well correlated.
Similar studies for preceding years are available as a series of CONCAWE
reports and the 25-year (1971 to 1995) performance statistics have been analysed and reported.
Alternative fuels in the automotive market", CONCAWE
This was largely based on a joint study between the Commission's Joint Research Centre (JRC), CONCAWE
(the oil industry's clean-air think tank) and EUCAR (European Council for Automotive R&D).
Over 1,100 samples were collected and analysed by CONCAWE member companies or independent laboratories.
Report No 5/98 is available (in English) from CONCAWE, Madouplein 1, B-1210 Brussels, Belgium.
EUCAR and CONCAWE
have decided to pro-actively collaborate with the JRC in order to be able to better meet the challenges that stringent regulations for the reduction and control of vehicle emissions aimed at environmental and health protection raise for the car and oil industries.
The pipeline is still the main and the safest way of transporting oil in bulk, points out CONCAWE, the oil companies' European organisation for environment, health and safety in its report on "Western European Cross-country Oil Pipelines: 25-year performance statistics".
But, unlike shipping and road traffic accidents involving oil tankers, nothing of large enough scale or frequency has occurred with pipelines in Europe to draw them to the attention of the general public, points out CONCAWE.
Third party incident reduction is a clear success story, claims CONCAWE, but the oil industry has suffered a setback in its progress towards reducing mechanical failures over the last five years or so.
Overall, there is no evidence to show that the ageing of the pipeline system itself poses any greater level of risk, CONCAWE concludes.
