The Effects of Environmental Policy and the Perception of Electric Motorcycles on the Acceptance of Electric Motorcycles: An Empirical Study in Macau
Air pollution is a serious environmental issue across the world and has drawn attention from researchers with different backgrounds. The carbon exhaust from gasoline vehicles is one cause of air
Hydrogen vs. Battery-Based Propulsion Systems in Unipersonal Vehicles—Developing Solutions to Improve the Sustainability of Urban Mobility
: The percentage of the population in urban areas has increased by ten points from 2000 (46%) to 2020 (56%); it is expected to reach up to 70% by 2050. This undoubtedly will encourage society to use


Volatile Organic Profiles and Photochemical Potentials from Motorcycle Engine Exhaust
The ozone formation potentials, based on an ECE test cycle, show that the values from the in-use motorcycles were higher than those from the new motorcycles, and the dominant VOC species were formaldehyde and acetaldehyde.
Potentials for sustainable transportation in cities to alleviate climate change impacts.
It is concluded that no one strategy will be sufficient to meet GHG emissions reduction goals to avoid climate change, so the best strategy is to pursue combinations of transportation GHG reduction strategies to meet reduction goals.
Attribution of climate forcing to economic sectors
The future evolution of the total radiative forcing due to perpetual constant year 2000 emissions by sector is quantified, most relevant for the development of climate policy now, and focus on two specific time points, near-term at 2020 and long- term at 2100.
