Comparative toxicity of gasoline and diesel engine emissions Seagrave, JeanClare et al

By: Seagrave, JeanClarePublication details: Warrendale, PA Society of Automotive Engineers, 2000; SAE technical paper 2000-001-2214, Description: 5 sSubject(s): Toxicity | Motor | Diesel engine | Petrol | USA | 93 | 15Online resources: Publikation/Publication Abstract: Better information on the comparative toxicity of airborne emissions from different types of engines is needed to guide the development of heavy vehicle engine, fuel, lubricant, and exhaust after-treatment technologies, and to place the health hazards of current heavy vehicle emissions in their proper perspective. To help fill this information gap, samples of vehicle exhaust particles and semi-volatile organic compounds (SVOC) were collected and analyzed. The biological activity of the combined particle-SVOC samples is being tested using standardized toxicity assays. This report provides an update on the design of experiments to test the relative toxicity of engine emissions from various sources.
