The U.S. Environmental Protection Agencys (EPA's) Office of Transportation and Air Quality (OTAQ) is developing programs to control greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from light-duty highway vehicles, which require an evaluation of the costs of technologies likely to be used to meet any standards. EPA contracted with FEV Incorporated to perform this cost analysis through tearing down vehicles, engines, and components, both with and without these technologies, and evaluating, part by part, the observed differences in size, weight, materials, machining steps and other cost-affecting parameters. Though complex and time-consuming, EPA believes this approach has great potential for determining accurate technology costs, a goal that is of paramount importance in the setting of appropriate GHG standards.
