Light Duty Emissions Laboratory
Measuring Exhaust Emissions Under Real-world Driving Conditions
AVL Test Systems Inc., in partnership with CE-CERT, has completed the installation of a state-of-the-art laboratory for measuring exhaust emissions under conditions that are representative of real-world driving conditions commissioned January, 2020. The facility meets all CFR 1065/1066 requirements, is
located within five miles of the new CARB Southern California head quarters. CE-CERT’s laboratory was designed to be nearly identical to the new test facility at CARB (the same equipment, designs, software, configurations, and firmware). The new CE-CERT LDL facility will be utilized to support advanced low emissions vehicles, hybrids, and electric vehicle performance and will be a leading research and training tool for Southern California. The laboratory includes AVL’s iGEM test cell automation system, capabilities for Ultra low emissions testing (SULEV[20/30], PZEV, other low emissions options), advanced non-regulatory data collection, real time PM (soot), fuels, blending, fuels impact, and on-road testing. As part of this partnership with AVL, additional in-house expertise will be available through CE-CERT such as combustion analysis tools and other specialized equipment with-in the AVL portfolio.
