REGULATED AND UNREGULATED EXHAUST EMISSIONS FROM MALFUNCTIONING NON-CATALYST AND OXIDATION CATALYST GASOLINE AUTOMOBILES
This report describes the laboratory effort to characterize regulated and unregulated exhaust emissions from non-catalyst and oxidation catalyst-equipped gasoline automobiles operating under malfunction conditions. One non-catalyst and four catalyst-equipped automobiles were evaluated over three driving schedules in the unmodified and in four engine and/or emission control system malfunction configurations. Exhaust emission constituents measured, in addition to the currently regulated emissions, include particulates, sulfates, aldehydes, sulfides, amines, metals and several additional elements and compounds.
