About this report
This report provides the results of a test project undertaken by Parsons Australia Pty Ltd, with the participation and assistance of the CSIRO Energy Technology Section, under contract to Environment Australia.
This project is an adjunct to a DNEPM Project 2.2, which measured the gaseous, particulate and visible smoke emissions from 80 diesel vehicles using commercial fuel using the CUEDCs.
A single report is provided combining the results of both Parts A and B of this project. However, a separate supplementary report is provided detailing the work carried out relating to Part B – metals. This supplemental report is provided under Section 8 of this report. A further comprehensive CSIRO report is available giving complete results and discussion of their measurements of air toxics.
