The Contribution of Oil to Carbon Particle Emissions from Diesel Engines
2010 (English)Report (Other academic)
Reducing particle emissions from diesel engines has been an important issue in recent decades. This study assesses the contribution of oil to carbon particle emissions by reviewing the literature and theory on fuel soot formation, and combining it with estimates based on a maximum and minimum approach.
The study shows that the minimum oil contribution to carbon particle emissions for a Euro 5 heavy-duty diesel without exhaust aftertreatment is around 0.4 mg/kWh. The corresponding maximum estimate is 1.1 mg/kWh.
