Nose for hire: research job on emissions not to be sniffed at

I KID you not . . . Nissan has asked an expert to sniff around and find out what a car emissions-free world would smell like. It is a long way from April 1, so we must assume they are deadly serious.

They have asked world-renowned master perfumer and Aroma Academy scientist Dr George Dodd to create an "aromatic blueprint" of what the world could smell like with zero emissions (ZE).

Not only do they want the scent of a zero-emissions future but one "to induce a positive sense of well-being to the sniffer".


Tallaght Ford on Airton Road is the first sole Ford dealer in Dublin to achieve the new CSS standard of the Society of the Irish Motor Industry (SIMI).

The CSS for vehicle bodyshop repairers is a new voluntary programme which sets minimum requirements for workers, equipment, repair methods and quality of repair materials.

Irish Independent Comments Facility

INM has taken the decision to remove the commenting facility on its online platform to minimise the legal risk to our business that arises from Ireland's draconian libel awards system.

We continue to look forward to receiving comments through direct email contact or via social media, some of which may still be featured on the website
