  • Effects of reducing particulate emissions from vehicles

    Vehicles are an important source of particulate matter (PM) pollutants. A new study cautions that reductions in PM exhaust emissions will not necessarily be matched an equal reduction in the toxic effects of emissions on health and the environment. This is important when designing regulations to limit the ecotoxicity of exhaust PM. Incomplete combustion of fuels and the breakdown of lubricants ...

  • Diesel Exhaust Poses Health Threat to Port Truck Drivers

    California port truck drivers face increased health risks from breathing dangerous levels of diesel exhaust fumes inside their truck cabs, according to a new report released today. The report was released just days before regulators are scheduled to consider requiring a clean up of the fleet of heavy duty trucks that transport cargo to and from the state's busy ports.
