CO emissions from burning fossil fuels make a relevant contribution to atmospheric changes and climate disruptions. In cities, the contribution by traffic of CO is very relevant, and the general CO estimation can be computed (i) on the basis of the fuel transformation in energy using several factors and efficiency aspects of engines and (ii) by taking into account the weight moved, distance, time, and emissions factor of each specific vehicle. Those approaches are unsuitable for understanding the impact of vehicles on CO in cities since vehicles produce CO depending on their specific efficiency, producer, fuel, weight, driver style, road conditions, seasons, etc. Read More
