  • Diesel Emissions, Health and the Law

    When diesel is used as an engine fuel, it is inevitable that you will produce Products of Incomplete Combustion (PICs). Hence, we never just produce carbon dioxide (CO2) and water (H2O) alone, but rather a myriad of hydrocarbons including aromatics (e.g. benzene, toluene) aldehydes and poly-aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in a semi-volatile phase or bound with carbonaceous particulate, and ...

  • High NOx Emissions from Diesel Cars

    It is time to sell your diesel car. In a few years you will not be able to use it in a city. The real drive emissions measurements from passenger cars are giving astonishing results. A new diesel car has 10 times higher NOx emissions compared to a petrol car. Even worse, the NOx emitted from the diesel car is up to 50% emitted as NO2. The ...

  • EU nations agree on stricter emissions testing for diesel

    European Union nations have reached a tentative deal on tougher emissions tests for diesel cars after the Volkswagen scandal showed previous methods were ineffective. The slow phase-in of the new standards, however, drew fire from environmentalists. Emissions from cars on the road in the EU have been found to be four to five times above the official limits. That's largely because the current ...

  • EPA investigating VW emissions controls in 2016 diesels

    Volkswagen plans to withdraw applications seeking U.S. emissions certifications for its 2016 model Jettas, Golfs, Passats and Beetles with diesel engines, raising the possibility that an emissions-rigging device similar to earlier models is also included in its new cars. VW has admitted that four-cylinder diesel cars from the 2009 to 2015 model years had software that helped the cars cheat on ...

Assistance will also be provided to schools, school districts and school bus ...

  • EPA Announces Grant Opportunities to Reduce Diesel Emissions at Ports

    Today, EPA announced the availability of up to $5 million in grant funding to establish clean diesel projects aimed at reducing emissions from marine and inland water ports located in areas of poor air quality. “Communities surrounding ports often face serious air quality and other environmental challenges, “ said Janet McCabe, Acting Assistant Administrator for the Office of Air and ...

  • Diesel emergency generators made `greener` using emissions control technology

    In today’s “green” economy, there’s a dirty little secret hiding behind many hospitals, colleges and data storage centers. It’s the diesel emergency generator. Belching soot, hydrocarbons, and carbon monoxide, diesel exhaust created by back-up generators is a proven cause of cardiovascular and pulmonary health problems. The National Air Toxics Assessment estimates the cancer risk from ...


  • EPA Announces Rebate Program to Reduce Diesel Emissions from School Buses

    Starting today, under the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) National Clean Diesel Rebate program, public and private school bus fleet owners are eligible to apply for funding to replace school buses that have older, dirtier diesel engines, which will reduce diesel emissions and will help improve air quality for Americans. "School buses are the safest and most environmentally friendly way to ...

  • EPA Awards $50 Million for Clean Diesel Projects /Reducing diesel emissions helps decrease asthma attacks and premature deaths

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has awarded $50 million for clean diesel projects as part of its ongoing campaign to reduce harmful emissions in the air and better protect people's health. These efforts will replace, retrofit or repower more than 8,000 older school buses, trucks, locomotives, vessels, and other diesel powered machines. Reducing emissions from existing diesels ...

  • EU Adopts World’s First Test for Diesel Car Emissions ‘On the Road’

    EU regulators have today agreed new test procedures that will, for the first time, measure the ‘real world’ emissions of diesel cars under the Euro 6 air quality standard. It will require vehicles to be tested on roads rather than in laboratories, overcoming obsolete tests and ‘cycle beating’ techniques used by carmakers to achieve results in tests many times lower than ...

  • CleanAIR Particulate Filters Protect Miners’ Exposure to Diesel Emissions

    Santa Fe, NM -- Miners have one of the most dangerous jobs in the world. While many federal regulations protect miners from on-the-job hazards, it has not always been easy to protect the air they breathe. Now new standards decided on February 9th by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit will help miners breathe easier by limiting exposure to diesel emissions, specifically ...

  • New generation diesel cars are likely to exceed emissions standards on the road

    More Europeans are driving diesel cars, with important implications for vehicle emissions. A new study suggests that diesel cars may emit nitrogen oxides (NOx) at levels far higher than emissions standards, even when considering the newest generation of diesel cars. Part of the problem is that tests of vehicle emissions in the laboratory do not accurately reflect on-road emissions. Owing ...
