Project Leader: Stephen Stewart
There is very little available data relating to fine particulate matter (PM) emissions from in-use light-duty vehicles. The goal of this project is to collect PM2.5 emissions data from light-duty diesel and gasoline vehicles, for the purposes of characterizing the PM emissions of the in-use fleet. The resulting data will be used for emission factor development; to aid in developing mitigation strategies; and to support effectiveness evaluation of mitigation strategies. In addition, the PM emission data will contribute to inventory work, development of emission reduction strategies, and evaluation of reduction strategies.
