High Altitude Motor Vehicle Test Facility

The Aurora Emissions Technical Center (15608 East 18th Avenue) provides all the services described above, plus high altitude motor vehicle exhaust emissions testing. This facility provides data for the evaluation of new strategies to reduce the emissions of carbon monoxide, particulates, oxides of nitrogen, volatile organic compounds and other motor-vehicle related pollutants.


Tests are conducted on the emissions performance of vehicles operated under a variety of conditions, such as wintertime driving or the use of oxygenated and alternative fuels. The facility also tests emissions control technology, such as on- board diagnostics that give vehicles the ability to self-detect emissions problems.
