Diesel Emission Control
Diesel exhaust is the gaseous exhaust produced by a diesel type of internal combustion engine , plus any contained particulates. Its composition may vary with the fuel type or rate of consumption, or speed of engine operation e. Diesel exhaust is a Group 1 carcinogen , which causes lung cancer and has a positive association with bladder cancer.
Methods exist to reduce nitrogen oxides NO x and particulate matter PM in the exhaust. So, while diesel fuel contains slightly more carbon 2. The primary products of petroleum fuel combustion in air are carbon dioxide, water, and nitrogen.
The other components exist primarily from incomplete combustion and pyrosynthesis. For instance, diesel engines produce one-twenty-eighth the carbon monoxide that gasoline engines do, as they burn their fuel in excess air even at full load. However, the lean-burning nature of diesel engines and the high temperatures and pressures of the combustion process result in significant production of NO x gaseous nitrogen oxides , an air pollutant that constitutes a unique challenge with regard to their reduction.
Auxiliary diesel systems designed to remediate the nitrogen oxide pollutants are described in a separate section below. Moreover, the fine particles fine particulate matter in diesel exhaust e.
These especially harmful particulate contaminants are at their peak when such engines are run without sufficient oxygen to fully combust the fuel; when a diesel engine runs at idle, enough oxygen is usually present to burn the fuel completely.
From the particle emission standpoint, exhaust from diesel vehicles has been reported to be significantly more harmful than those from petrol vehicles. Diesel exhausts, long known for their characteristic smells, changed significantly with the reduction of sulfur content of diesel fuel, and again when catalytic converters were introduced in exhaust systems.
The following are classes of chemical compounds that have been found in diesel exhaust. The following are classes of specific chemicals that have been found in diesel exhaust. See ortho-, meta-, and para- isomer descriptions at each compound's article. To rapidly reduce particulate matter from heavy-duty diesel engines in California, the California Air Resources Board created the Carl Moyer Memorial Air Quality Standards Attainment Program to provide funding for upgrading engines ahead of emissions regulations.
Unlike international shipping, that has a Sufhur limit att 3. Mandatory specifications also apply to more than a dozen fuel parameters. Emissions from diesel vehicles have been reported to be significantly more harmful than those from petrol vehicles. Exposure to diesel exhaust and diesel particulate matter DPM is an occupational hazard to truckers , railroad workers, occupants of residential homes in vicinity of a rail yard , and miners using diesel-powered equipment in underground mines.
Adverse health effects have also been observed in the general population at ambient atmospheric particle concentrations well below the concentrations in occupational settings.
In March , U. This allowed scientists to isolate the effects of diesel fumes. For over 10 years, concerns have been raised in the USA regarding children's exposure to DPM as they ride diesel-powered school buses to and from school. Diesel particulate matter DPM , sometimes also called diesel exhaust particles DEP , is the particulate component of diesel exhaust, which includes diesel soot and aerosols such as ash particulates, metallic abrasion particles, sulfates , and silicates.
When released into the atmosphere , DPM can take the form of individual particles or chain aggregates, with most in the invisible sub-micrometre range of nanometers , also known as ultrafine particles UFP or PM0. The main particulate fraction of diesel exhaust consists of fine particles. Because of their small size, inhaled particles may easily penetrate deep into the lungs.
Exposures have been linked with acute short-term symptoms such as headache , dizziness , light-headedness , nausea , coughing , difficult or labored breathing , tightness of chest, and irritation of the eyes, nose, and throat. Mortality from diesel soot exposure in was at least 14, out of the German population of 82 million, according to the official report of the Umweltbundesamt Berlin Federal Environmental Agency of Germany.
The study of nanoparticles and nanotoxicology is in its infancy, and health effects from nanoparticles produced by all types of diesel engines are still being uncovered. It is clear, that diesel health detriments of fine particle emissions are severe and pervasive. Although one study found no significant evidence that short-term exposure to diesel exhaust results in adverse extrapulmonary effects, effects that are correlated with an increase in cardiovascular disease ,  a study in The Lancet concluded that traffic exposure is the single most serious preventable trigger of heart attack in the general public, as the cause of 7.
Since the study of the detrimental health effects of nanoparticles nanotoxicology is still in its infancy, and the nature and extent of negative health impacts from diesel exhaust continues to be discovered.
It remains controversial, whether the public health impact of diesels is higher than that of petrol-fuelled vehicles. The types and quantities of nanoparticles can vary according to operating temperatures and pressures, presence of an open flame, fundamental fuel type and fuel mixture, and even atmospheric mixtures.
As such, the resulting types of nanoparticles from different engine technologies and even different fuels are not necessarily comparable. Diesel engines can produce black soot or more specifically diesel particulate matter from their exhaust.
The black smoke consists of carbon compounds that have not burned because of local low temperatures where the fuel is not fully atomized. These local low temperatures occur at the cylinder walls, and at the surface of large droplets of fuel. At these areas where it is relatively cold, the mixture is rich contrary to the overall mixture which is lean. The rich mixture has less air to burn and some of the fuel turns into a carbon deposit.
Modern car engines use a diesel particulate filter DPF to capture carbon particles and then intermittently burn them using extra fuel injected directly into the filter. This prevents carbon buildup at the expense of wasting a small quantity of fuel. The full load limit of a diesel engine in normal service is defined by the "black smoke limit", beyond which point the fuel cannot be completely burned. As the "black smoke limit" is still considerably lean of stoichiometric, it is possible to obtain more power by exceeding it, but the resultant inefficient combustion means that the extra power comes at the price of reduced combustion efficiency, high fuel consumption and dense clouds of smoke.
This is only done in high performance applications where these disadvantages are of little concern. When starting from cold, the engine's combustion efficiency is reduced because the cold engine block draws heat out of the cylinder in the compression stroke. The result is that fuel is not burned fully, resulting in blue and white smoke and lower power outputs until the engine has warmed.
This is especially the case with indirect injection engines, which are less thermally efficient. With electronic injection, the timing and length of the injection sequence can be altered to compensate for this. Older engines with mechanical injection can have mechanical and hydraulic governor control to alter the timing, and multi-phase electrically controlled glow plugs , that stay on for a period after start-up to ensure clean combustion; the plugs are automatically switched to a lower power to prevent their burning out.
The other being, when too much fuel is in the combustion chamber. Experiments in showed that diesel exhaust impaired bees ' ability to detect the scent of oilseed rape flowers. With emission standards tightening, diesel engines are having to become more efficient and have fewer pollutants in their exhaust. When running on dimethyl ether DME for instance, particulate matter emissions are near-nonexistent, and the use of diesel particulate filters could even be omitted.
Mixing in bioether or other fuels such as hydrogen   into conventional diesel also tends to have a beneficial effect on the pollutants that are emitted. In addition to changing the fuel, US engineers have also come up with two other principles and distinct systems to all on-market products that meet the U. Both are in the exhaust system of diesel engines, and are further designed to promote efficiency. Selective catalytic reduction SCR injects a reductant such as ammonia or urea — the latter aqueous, where it is known as diesel exhaust fluid , DEF — into the exhaust of a diesel engine to convert nitrogen oxides NO x into gaseous nitrogen and water.
Exhaust gas recirculation EGR , on diesel engines, can be used to achieve a richer fuel to air mixture and a lower peak combustion temperature. Both effects reduce NO x emissions, but can negatively impact efficiency and the production of soot particles.
The richer mix is achieved by displacing some of the intake air, but is still lean compared to petrol engines, which approach the stoichiometric ideal. The lower peak temperature is achieved by a heat exchanger that removes heat before re-entering the engine, and works due to the exhaust gases' higher specific heat capacity than air.
With the greater soot production, EGR is often combined with a particulate matter PM filter in the exhaust. John Deere , the farm equipment manufacturer, is implementing such a combined SCR-EGR design, in a 9-liter "inline 6" diesel engine that involves both system types, a PM filter and additional oxidation catalyst technologies.
Recirculated exhaust gas and the compressed air from the turbochargers have separate coolers, and air merges before entering the intake manifold, and all subsystems are controlled by a central engine control unit that optimizes minimization of pollutants released in the exhaust gas. A new technology being tested in has been created by Air Ink which collects carbon particles using a "Kaalink" cylindrical device that is retrofitted into a vehicle's exhaust system, after processing to remove heavy metals and carcinogens, the company plans to use the carbon to make ink.
There has been research into ways that troops in deserts can recover drinkable water from their vehicles' exhaust gases. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Diesel emissions and their control
For nearly two decades the U. Environmental Protection Agency has been creating more stringent regulations for the reduction of diesel engine pollutants. The affected industries are entering the fourth and final Tier of the new regulations. Tier 4 final emission regulations are scheduled to go in effect as early as for engines greater than 25 hp, leaving design engineers, manufacturers, and end users to face tough challenges. For more than 50 years, awareness about air pollution and its associated health and environmental risks has been increasing in the U. As a result, the U. Stationary diesel generators were not targeted in the original policies.

Medium duty diesel vehicles identified with obvious defective emission or safety conditions will NOT be counted in the performance measures utilized to determine overall program effectiveness.
И у тебя нет кредитной карточки. - Есть, но отец ее заблокировал. Он думает, что я балуюсь наркотиками.
Он принял решение. Под визг покрышек, в снопе искр Беккер резко свернул вправо и съехал с дороги. Колеса мотоцикла подпрыгнули, ударившись о бетонное ограждение, так что он едва сумел сохранить равновесие. Из-под колес взметнулся гравий. Мотоцикл начал подниматься по склону.
Простите, сэр, вы, кажется, меня не… - Merde alors. Я отлично все понял! - Он уставил на Беккера костлявый указательный палец, и его голос загремел на всю палату.
