THE STRATEGIES FOR REDUCING EMISSIONS FROM HEAVY DUTY DIESEL VEHICLES

Air pollution problem caused by heavy duty diesel vehicles in urban transportation has been investigated. At first, the contribution of heavy duty diesel trucks to air pollution especially by nitrogen oxides and particulate matter is discussed. It has been found out that the emissions, particularly nitrogen oxide and particulate matter, from heavy duty diesel vehicles are disproportionately high compared to their population or vehicle miles traveled. Additionally, a few methods to reduce the emission in cylinder of diesel engines are presented also which seem to be of great practical importance in the future.
