In an open procedure, the Flemish government issued a request for an offer to update the emission factors for hybrid vehicles with regard to their emissions in real situations. The scope of this study covers both greenhouse gas emissions (CO2, N2O and CH4) and pollutants (NOx, NO2, PM, PM10, PM2.5, NH3, VOS and SO2), and this for the hybrid variants for both passenger cars, light and heavy trucks as buses and coaches. In this way, the contracting government department wishes to be able to carry out an update of the current emission inventory and the predictions that are made about this for Flemish road transport. This approach is relevant given the hybrid powertrain and the potential to reduce the aforementioned emissions. In addition, Flanders is committed to making its transport system more sustainable, which is reflected in its ambitions to reduce CO2 emissions by 4030 - across all sectors - by 40% compared to the situation in 1990 and to become 27% more energy efficient (cf. Flemish Climate Policy). On the other hand, Flanders is working with its "Air Policy Plan 2030" to reduce harmful emissions in order to halve the health impact compared to 2005, as estimated by the World Health Organization (WHO). For this purpose, Flanders reports annually on the progress of this process in the context of the NEC directive (Directive 2016/2284). In the long term (objective 2050), the aim is to achieve a Flemish air quality that no longer has a significant negative impact on public health and does not exceed the carrying capacity of ecosystems.
