Provides a guide for fleet operators on retrofit diesel abatement for particulate matter. It also includes information on technical options, benefits and costs. It aims to be a starting point on particulate matter abatement rather than a holistic guide.
It reviews the laws applicable with emission standards. Furthermore, it reviews commercially available options for retrofit exhaust abatement.
Wall flow filters reduce PM emissions potentially by more than 95% in terms of mass and more than 99% in terms of numbers.
Partial flow filters potentially reduces PM emissions by greater 30 – 60%.
Diesel oxidation catalysts reduce PM emissions in terms of mass by less than 25%.
