Evaporative Emission Testing

A holistic solution for evaporative emission testing of vehicles and components

SHED System

As global emission legislations become increasingly stringent, each industry sector must ensure it complies with both current and future legislation. Therefore, it is vital to test all gasoline-powered vehicles for evaporative emissions. 

We have developed the AVL VEHICLE SHED TS™ to meet the toughest global requirements, such as those across Europe, America, Japan, India, and China. The system comprises of a range of evaporative measuring devices, vehicle testbed modules and specially designed automation functions.


In addition to this reference solution for vehicle certification, our systems are used in diverse industries and for all vehicle types. They are also widely used for component testing and in research and development. We support many individual areas of component testing, ranging from tank and fuel supply systems to air conditioning systems. Vehicle Interior Air Quality (VIAQ) and Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) testing is supported as well.

Our systems feature a common, intuitive user interface and the automation of evaporative emission testing. This has enabled it to quickly become an industry standard and it has already been proven in a variety of installations. As well as being installed at OEM facilities around the world, it is also widely available at our own locations, and is used globally by certification authorities.
