Emissions and Electrification of the U.S. Motorcycle Market

A motorcycle rounding a corner

In 2011, GlobalMRV made a historic appearance on the popular MythBusters TV show. We were asked to help conduct a test to see how motorcycles compared to cars. The result? Two-wheelers from the 2000s era performed terribly, with 3,220% more NOx and 8,065% more CO₂ than cars of the same era.  From motorcycle myth busting… Read more »

Using Emissions Monitoring for ESG Reporting (& Compliance)

An image of graph data rising into the sky

Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) becomes more and more important by the day. Businesses, fleet teams, automotive testing engineers, and original equipment manufacturers: it’s in our best interest to keep your team’s emissions measurement tools and systems up to date to meet local and federal regulations. But where do we start? Yes, how do we… Read more »

Hydrocarbon Emission Control: Discover the Power of PEMS/iPEMS


To build a cleaner and more sustainable future, we must continue to monitor and reduce hydrocarbon (HC) emissions from various sources. This blog explores the revolutionary technologies of Portable Emission Measurement Systems (PEMS), integrated PEMS (iPEMS), and Micro-PEMS. We’ll shed light on how these technologies can accurately measure and mitigate hydrocarbon emissions. Let’s dive in. … Read more »

Curbing Nitrogen Oxides (NOx) Using PEMS, iPEMS, and Micro-PEMS


Reducing nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions from internal combustion engines (ICE) is a critical concern in addressing air quality and environmental impact. In recent years, the world has placed a growing emphasis on employing advanced technologies — such as In-Use Portable Emission Measurement Systems (iPEMs), Portable Emission Measurement Systems (PEMS), and Micro-PEMs — to achieve more… Read more »

Driving Towards a Greener Future: Exploring the Benefits of Gas, Hydrogen, and Electric Vehicles


In the ever-evolving landscape of transportation, making the shift towards sustainable and eco-friendly options has become increasingly imperative. Gas-, hydrogen-, and electric-powered vehicles represent distinct solutions to the environmental challenges posed by traditional combustion engine vehicles. Each technology comes with a unique set of advantages, thereby helping contribute to a cleaner, more sustainable future for… Read more »

What is PEMS/HaaS? Transform the Way You Do Emissions Monitoring

Cars all lined up in a row that extends into the background.

The battle against climate change requires innovative solutions to curb greenhouse gas emissions and reduce our carbon footprint. One such solution is the use of Global Monitoring, Reporting, and Verification’s (GlobalMRV) Portable Emissions Measurement Systems (PEMS) via a Hardware as a Service (HaaS) model. The powerful combination of PEMS in a HaaS model is revolutionizing… Read more »
