Diesel Emissions Conference Russia & CIS 2013
Following the success of Integer’s launch conference in 2012, the 2nd Diesel Emissions Conference Russia & CIS will bring together over 200 senior executives from commercial vehicle and non-road OEMs, as well as emissions technology suppliers, oil companies, government legislators and representatives from industry associations who will examine profitable and fuel efficient emissions reduction strategies across the on and off-highway sectors.
The conference will address:
Non-road mobile machinery (NRMM)
New for 2013
Russia’s accession to the World Trade Organisation (WTO)
Diesel Emissions Conference Russia & CIS 2013 will investigate the effect of Russia’s accession to the WTO in August 2012 which will see a considerable reduction in customs duties for international OEMs importing vehicles into the country. The conference will examine the impact and opportunities this may have on the Russian automotive industry and explore whether there may be a shift in demand for foreign vehicles in a market where locally produced commercial vehicles have traditionally dominated.
Alternatives to diesel
Air quality in urban areas is such a serious concern in Russia that studies exploring the environmental and economic benefits of NGV are now being undertaken. Russia has the largest gas reserves in the entire world but a lack of infrastructure means it only falls 20th in the use of the fuel. The conference will reveal the potential of natural gas as a viable alternative to diesel and consider what plans Russian stakeholders have for the development of natural gas as an alternative fuel to diesel.
We are pleased to announce Wema as the environmental sponsor at this year’s event.
Climate change is the most pressing global issue facing us all, with potential for significant community, biodiversity and environmental consequences across the world. To take responsibility for our impact on the climate, Integer in partnership with Wema are offsetting the carbon emissions from our events through ClimateCare.
ClimateCare is an organisation that reduces global greenhouse gas emissions on behalf of companies and individuals. These reductions are made through a range of projects around the world that not only make real reductions in carbon emissions, but also make a difference to people’s lives.
