EXHAUST EMISSIONS FROM 2-STROKE OUTBOARD MOTORS AND THEIR IMPACT

Four new motors were tested on dynamomenter stands. Emission concentrations were measured in raw exhaust gas and after the gases had been bubbled through water in a specially constructed tank. Constituents measured included hydrocarbons, CO, CO2, NO, NOX, O2, light hydrocarbons, and aldehydes. Emissions of sulfur oxides (SOX) were estimated on the basis of fuel consumed, and all the exhaust emissions data were used with available information on population and usage of motors to estimate exhaust emission factors and national exhaust emissions impact.
