  • 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 ...

  • Air quality impact of diesel ‘severely underestimated’

    Hydrocarbons are precursors to hazardous air pollutants including ozone and particulate matter. Hydrocarbons from diesel make up over 50% of all hydrocarbons in the air in London, a new study has found. The authors also estimate that they contribute up to half of total ozone production potential in London, and say future air quality control strategies must focus more on these pollutants. Around ...
