Secondary Aerosol Formation (S-Feinstaub)
Contact: André Prévôt, email@example.com
Scope of project
- Trucks with different exhaust after-treatment (100% diesel versus 50%diesel/50% liquid gas)
- Diesel light duty vehicles (focus on high speeds)
- Gasoline light duty vehicles (focus on cold start at different temperatures)
- Scooters (2-stroke versus 4-stroke and the first trial of new aromatic free fuels and oils)
- Non-road Diesel-engines (focus on construction machinery with particle filters)
- Influence of biofuels (bio-ethanol cars at different temperatures)
- Ispra, Italy, September 15 - October 28 2011
- Biel, Switzerland, Bern University of Applied Sciences, 2012
- Ispra, Italy, 2012
- Results so far indicate that 2-stroke scooters are an important source of both primary and secondary carbonaceous particulate matter
