Best Available Technology in Emission Reduction

14th VERT FORUM 2024 - March 22nd, 2024 -- NOW also ONLINE!
HORIZON EUROPE AeroSolfd Project
VERT initiative for "New periodic technical inspection" (NPTI)



VERT Scientific work with over 200 scientific publications – only available for VERT Members.

What VERT® stands for:

  • An Association dedicated to the promotion of Best Available Technology for emission control
  • Providing solutions to eliminate ultrafine particle emissions in order to mitigate health and environmental effects including global warming
  • Apply Best Available Technology to hydrogen, low-carbon and renewable fuels
  • The Core objective of VERT® is the minimization of health burden caused by combustion engine emissions, esp. the elimination of Ultra Fine Particles (UFP)
  • Members of VERT® are international manufacturers of engines, testing devices, DPF and SCR systems, as well as of substrate producers, chassis builders, universities and research centers among others
  • VERT® stresses and recommends the application of particle number measurement against a pure particle mass count as very light Ultra Fine Particles (UFP) cause a major threat to health
  • We set the highest quality standards for emission control technology by certifying emission control technologies (VERT® Label) and publishing the VERT® filter list
  • VERT® supports traffic pollution reduction programs all over the world and Clean Urban Mobility

What makes VERT® unique:

  • 20 years of experience in diesel particulate filter technology
  • Pioneer in nanoparticle measurement and retrofitting of diesel particle filters
  • Highest technical standards and procedures which are shared in the VERT® Forum conference every March
  • A close cooperation with science and research institutes with the aim of supporting new findings on health effects and benefits
  • More than 400,000 vehicles worldwide (on-road and off-road) retrofitted with diesel particle filter systems
  • More than 65 verified filter systems
  • Influential role in international legislation (EURO VI regulation; NRMM Stage V)

"Few risks have a greater impact on global health today than air pollution; the evidence signals the need for concerted action to clean up the air we all breathe."

Dr. Maria Neira,
Director of WHO’s Department for Public Health, Environmental and Social Determinants of Health, 2012
