Clean air is essential for life, yet harmful emissions threaten our health every day. The ever stricter exhaust emission limits for the protection of the environment and our posterity are constantly presenting development and test engineers with new challenges. As a "responsible company", DEKRA provides services in all areas of life and offers solutions for the sustainable development of the economy in harmony with the environment.
DEKRA supports the further development of measuring methods and the constant adaptation of limit values. State-of-the-art exhaust emission tests throughout the life cycle of vehicles can detect limit value violations. Since July 2019 experts have been testing the exhaust gas behaviour in the DEKRA Technology Center Klettwitz with two new, additional roller test benches, which has doubled the capacity of the "drives" in the exhaust gas laboratory. DEKRA also positions itself at trade and industrial fairs on the subject of air pollution control and hazardous substances.
DEKRA supports the strengthening of market surveillance and the neutral position of its testers. This includes the possible introduction of road surveillance and the further development of vehicle inspection and tailpipe measurement. DEKRA is always available as a partner for even more intensive cooperation and networking between all institutions entrusted with air pollution control.
