  • London’s reliance on diesel triggers re-emergence of an old enemy: smog

    It’s Christmastime on Oxford Street. Brilliant displays of white lights rain from above. Decked-out shoppers dash from one gaudy sale to the next. And Johnny Conquest breathes in poison. “The air is horrible. The taxis stop right here, and when they take off, boom, you can taste it,” says the 67-year-old as the heavenly smell of the caramel peanuts he hawks from a humble street ...

  • Diesel emission reductions through electrification of new England produce center TRUs case study

    MJB&A acted as project manager to a New England Produce Center (NEPC) Transportation Refrigeration Unit (TRU) Electrification Project led by the Chelsea Collaborative, a community-based organization. NEPC, located in Chelsea, MA, is the second largest produce market in the U.S., and is the hub for virtually all produce deliveries in and out of New England. Through grant funding provided by ...

  • Characterization and ecological risk assessment of nanoparticulate CeO2 as a diesel fuel catalyst

    Nanoparticulate cerium dioxide (nano‐CeO2), when combusted as an additive to diesel fuel, was transformed from 6 nm to 14 nm sizes into particles near 43 nm, with no obvious change in the unit cell dimensions or crystalline form. Cerium sulfate, if formed during combustion, was below detection limits. Ceria nanoparticles were agglomerated within the soot matrix, with a mean aerodynamic ...

  • Combinations of Measures for Reduction of NOx & Nanoparticles of a Diesel Engine

    Reduction of NOx- and particle emissions of Diesel engines is worldwide an important challenge for the engineers. Some unregulated components, like NO2, NH3 and naoparticles NP came in the focus of attention in the last years.Application of EGR and / or SCR can lower NOx, using RME (Bxx) can increase NOx. What happens with NP, parameter which enters in some further steps of exhaust gas ...

  • Biodiesel versus diesel: a pilot study comparing exhaust exposures for employees at a rural municipal facility

    Many organizations interested in renewable, domestic energy have switched from petroleum diesel to biodiesel blends for use in transportation and heavy-duty equipment. Although considerable evidence exists on the negative health effects of petroleum diesel exhaust exposures in occupational settings, there has been little research examining biodiesel exposures. Working collaboratively with a local ...

  • Nanosized materials for environmental and energy related applications

    Efforts are being made to develop nanomaterials for addressing issues related to energy, environment and resource conservation. In this connection, research is being conducted at Environmental Materials Unit in the area of development of nanosized structural analogues related to molecular sieves and zeolites, surface functionalised zeolites, pervoskite based catalytic materials, multifunctional ...

  • School bus retrofits one local air

    The Hamilton County Department of Environmental Services, a local air agency covering the Greater Cincinnati Area in Southwest Ohio, has experienced many successes and failures obtaining grant money to fund school bus retrofits. However, seven years of persistent work has paid-off enormously. The adverse health effects of diesel exhaust were making national headlines in the early 2000s. The U.S. ...

  • Maintaining fuel quality in a stored environment

    What do all of these true stories have in common? Poor fuel quality. In all of these cases, poor fuel quality shutdown emergency standby power generators exactly when they were being counted on in the middle of adisaster. And the number of hurricanes, wildfires, blackouts, floods, earthquakes and the like in recent yearshas added significantly to the lore, though most are closely guarded stories ...

  • Composition and textural properties of soot and study of their oxidative elimination by catalytic process

    Diesel soot and reference carbon black samples have been characterised by analysis of the organic compounds fraction and determination of textural characteristics (specific area). The potential to eliminate such carbonaceous particles has been investigated using a Cu/ZrO2 solid catalyst promoted by potassium additives. The reactivity of soot samples depends on the organic compounds content. In ...

  • Suppression of particle deposition onto downstream wall in an AC Electrostatic Precipitator with neutralisation

    Electrostatic Precipitators (ESPs) are used to decontaminate polluted environment around the tunnels. A conventional ESP has high collection efficiency but still has a problem in that its downstream walls are polluted due to particle deposition. The experiments carried out in this study have focused on how the particle deposition can be prevented by neutralising the gases. The collection ...
