  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • South Korea to probe Volkswagen diesel vehicle emissions

    South Korea said Tuesday it will investigate emission levels of Volkswagen diesel vehicles after the world's top-selling automaker admitted cheating U.S. tests. Park Pan-kyu, a deputy director at South Korea's environment ministry, said that four models - Golf, Jetta, Beetle and Audi A3 - are subject to the probe, which is expected to end in ...

  • 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 ...

  • US sues VW over emissions-cheating software in diesel cars

    The Justice Department sued Volkswagen on Monday over emissions-cheating software found in nearly 600,000 vehicles sold in the United States, potentially exposing the company to billions of dollars in penalties for clean air violations. The civil complaint against the German automaker, filed on behalf of the Environmental Protection Agency in U.S. District Court in Detroit, alleges the company ...

  • EPA Awards $556,650 to Help Massachusetts Marine Vessels Reduce Diesel Emissions

    Two Massachusetts projects have been awarded more than a half-million dollars under a competitive national grant competition to reduce diesel emissions. The grants, totaling $556,650, were made under the Diesel Emissions Reduction Act (DERA). The funding will assist CLF Ventures, Inc., which is receiving $300,000 to repower the Spirit of Boston; and the Northeast States for Coordinated Air Use ...

  • EPA Awards Funds to Oregon to Reduce Harmful Diesel Emissions in Portland

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency today announced a $1.5 million Diesel Emission Reduction Act grant to the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) that ultimately will remove tons of air pollution from diesel-fueled activities at and near the Port of Portland. EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy announced the grant at an event this morning in North Portland with Oregon DEQ ...

  • 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 ...

  • Volkswagen – EMIT can account for real-world diesel emissions

    Analysis of measurements from the last decade throughout Europe have demonstrated that ambient NOx and NO2concentrations are not decreasing in line with the published emission factors (Carslaw et al. 2011). On-road vehicle testing in the UK has highlighted that ...

  • 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 ...

  • EPA awards $1.5 million to assist in reduction of diesel emissions to NCTCOG (TX)

    The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has awarded $1.5 million to assist in the reduction of diesel emissions to the North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG). The funds will be used to reduce the idling of school buses while improving air quality and protecting the health of school-aged children. Assistance will also be provided to schools, school districts and school bus ...

  • 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
