Motor vehicle emissions modelling for Australia

COPERT Australia is the result of a joint effort of EMISIA and the Queensland Department of Science, Information Technology, Innovation and the Arts (DSITIA). COPERT Australia calculates greenhouse gas and air pollutant emissions from road transport, covering all important vehicle classes and driving conditions in Australia.

The COPERT Australia software includes algorithms that are developed from data collected in Australian test programs designed to reflect the Australian fleet and activity data. It is designed to be used for road transport emission inventories across Australia and potentially become a harmonized national prediction tool.

Background

COPERT Australia is based on thousands of Australian vehicle emission and fuel consumption tests over real-world Australian drive cycles. This ensures the model
reflects the Australian on-road fleet, fuel composition, climate and driving conditions.

COPERT Australia also incorporates the latest Australian scientific work such as explicit consideration of spatial resolution.

Technical features

Emission types
    COPERT Australia estimates emissions from all relevant driving modes:
  • thermal stabilised engine operation (‘hot’ emissions);
  • thewarming-up phase (‘cold start’ emissions);
  • non-exhaust emissions (from fuel evaporation, tyre and brake wear emissions).
Vehicle categories
    COPERT Australia contains emission factors for more than 250 individual vehicle types including for:
  • passenger cars
  • SUVs
  • light commercial vehicles
  • heavy duty vehicles (including trucks and buses)
  • mopeds and motorcycles

Emission control technologies (‘ADR’ standards) and relevant fuel types (petrol, diesel, E10, LPG) are included for the vehicle categories — additional user‑defined technologies and fuel types can be easily introduced.
