KNOXVILLE, Tenn.--Hager Environmental & Atmospheric Technologies (HEAT) was recently invited to present about their Emissions Detection and Reporting (EDAR) system to United Kingdom Parliament at the House of Commons. Yolla Hager, president of HEAT, said, “It was such a huge honor to be given the opportunity to present our technology to Parliament and the Prime Minister’s office at 10 Downing Street.” Yolla Hager, presented on how EDAR can provide a solution for monitoring real world driving emissions which can in turn help improve air quality in London. The issue of air quality in London can no longer be ignored. It is a visible threat that is killing tens of thousands each year prematurely.
Vehicles are becoming smarter and cleaner everyday, therefore a technology such as EDAR is a necessity to capture extremely accurate real world on road emissions data and driving habits of motorists in their natural environment. It is also extremely important to collect real world data to combat devices much like Volkswagen's defeat device.
Yolla Hager’s presentation focused on how EDAR's sophisticated and advanced technology works, the benefits of EDAR, and how it could be implemented in tandem with the Ultra Low Emission Zones (ULEZ). New London Mayor, Sadiq Kahn, is dedicated to solving the London air pollution crisis. His first major policy announcement in office was to tackle the air pollution problem by doubling the ULEZs. HEAT believes that the implementation of EDAR can assist with his goals.
HEAT would like to thank the UK Parliament and the policy advisors to the Prime Minister for inviting them to present on how EDAR may help benefit clean air zones. It was an incredible honor to be given the opportunity.
