The impact of sulphur content of diesel fuel on ultrafine particle formation
Ristovski, Z.D., Morawska, L., Moore, Michael R., Agranovski, V., Swanson, C., & Hughes, D. (2003) The impact of sulphur content of diesel fuel on ultrafine particle formation. In National Clean Air Conference 2003, 23-27 November, 2003, Newcastle.
Early this year the Australian Department of Environment and Heritage commissioned a desktop literature review with a focus on ultrafine particles including analysis of health impacts of the particles as well as the impact of sulphur content of diesel fuel on ultrafine particle emission. This paper summarizes the findings of the report on the link between the sulphur content of diesel fuels and the number of ultrafine particles in diesel emissions. The literature search on this topic resulted in over 150 publications. The majority of these publications, although investigating different aspects of the influence of fuel sulphur level on diesel vehicle emissions, were not directly concerned with ultrafine particle emissions. A specific focus of the paper is on: ----- ----- summary of state of knowledge established by the review, and ----- ----- summary of recommendations on the research priorities for Australia to address the information gaps for this issue, and on the appropriate management responses.
