LOCOMOTIVE EXHAUST EMISSIONS AND THEIR IMPACT

Exhaust emission measurements were made on three locomotive engines: an EMD 12-567, an EMD 16-645E-3, and a General Electric 7FDL16. Constituents measured included: total hydrocarbons, light hydrocarbons, CO, CO sub 2, NO (two methods), NO sub x, O sub 2, aldehydes, and smoke. The locomotives were operated in a stationary position at a diagnostic facility, and continuous analysis was employed for all constituents except light hydrocarbons and aldehydes. The emissions data acquired were used in conjunction with information on locomotive population and usage to estimate emission factors and national emissions impact.
