ENVI committee adopts important changes to emissions law for non-road mobile machinery

On September 2014 the European Commission issued a proposal for the revision of Directive 97/68, which regulates  exhaust emissions from and test procedure for the different types of engines.

The ENVI committee of the European Parliament reached an agreement, yesterday, on the dossier, handing a mandate to Rapporteur Elisabetta Gardini (EPP) and the shadow rapporteurs to start trialogue negotiations with Council and Commission shortly. The new emissions regulation sets highly ambitious requirements in terms of environmental protection, as Europe will impose as of 2019 the strictest emissions limits in the world.

2014 a good year for Construction Machinery: CECE releases Economic Report

2014 was a troubled, yet good, year for the European construction equipment industry. Sales on the European market grew by 9% compared to 2013. Exports showed a slight momentum of growth. Behind only North America, the European construction equipment market has been the second most dynamic region in 2014.  However, there were huge disparities: Southern Europe remains at very low absolute levels whereas markets such as the UK and Germany are not that far away from pre-crisis levels. 

Expectations for 2015 are rather flat, or only featuring a slight growth
