REPORT FROM THE SEMINAR: SAMPLING AND ANALYSIS OF UNREGULATED AUTOMOTIVE EMISSIONS

The aim of this report is to discuss sampling and analysis of unregulated automotive emissions. For this purpose a group of experts got together. The discussion dealt with the following: (1) Important unregulated pollutants in Sweden; (2) Measuring methods. At the EPA laboratories at Tringle Park different measuring methods have been developed in order to carry out analyses and to study the effect on quality when using new and alternative fuels and fuel blends; (3) Use of Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) technology. This is an efficient way to carry out multi analyses of emission components in the motor vehicle exhaust. When measuring the PAC-emission it is essential to sample both the particulate and semi-volatile phase of exhaust. Different methods can be used for measurement of NOX. Low ambient temperatures have a considerable impact on the motor vehicle emissions and especially on such emission components which come from unburnt fuel.
