THE RELATIONSHIP OF VEHICLE EMISSION STANDARDS AND AIR QUALITY STANDARDS. VOLUME I

The National Ambient Air Quality Standards (AQS) for nonmethane hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide, oxides of nitrogen, and oxidant and the relevant data are reviewed critically. The relationships between the vehicle emission standards (VES) and the corresponding AQS are discussed in terms of available and improved models. It is concluded that, for a two-car strategy, VES within the ranges listed with a few localized exceptions will achieve by 1985 the AQS for NO2, CO and Oxidants. If a single set of VES were to be used for all 50 states, then the ranges shown above for California would apply. These results are compared with those obtained in a similar study by the National Academy of Science/National Academy of Engineering.
