Emissions of vehicles or parts are of special interest for many reasons. There are multiple legal requirements which have to be met by automobile OEMs. In addition automobile OEMs set maximum concentration levels for compounds which are not to be exceeded by the suppliers. Besides, part of the compounds emitted might be odor active which, depending on quality and quantity, may negatively influence passenger well-being.
For the determination of the detailed composition of emissions VETReC provides modern and comprehensive analytical facilities as well as numerous test facilities such as SHED test chambers, a vehicle emission test stand with sun simulation and an engine test stand. By these means many tests according to a wide range of standards (e. g. VDA, DIN, CARB) and OEM procedures can be performed. Certain facilities of VETReC are accredited according to DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025:2005. For special questions suitable test procedures and experimental set-ups can be developed.
