Delphi Technical Center Rochester Vehicle Emissions Testing Laboratory

The Vehicle Emissions Testing Laboratory at the Delphi Technical Center Rochester (TCR) offers vehicle manufacturers and automotive component suppliers three state-of-the-art test chambers, including one with environmental capability for engine and exhaust aftertreatment development and regulatory compliance support. Real-time modal and tailpipe emissions data can be collected for the following requirements:

  • U. S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
  • California Air Resources Board (CARB)
  • European regulatory schedules (ECE)
  • Extra Urban Driving Cycle (EUDC)
  • Asian regulatory schedules
  • Custom tailored testing and development

The TCR Vehicle Emissions Testing Laboratory has validation resources that have been enhanced over the years through collaboration with major manufacturers around the world. Testing is conducted by a highly trained and experienced staff that understands the challenges facing manufacturers today. Complete confidentiality for testing is assured. Laboratory services are conducted to meet individual customer schedules at a competitive cost.
