This guide provides basic information on the reduction of particulate matter emissions from diesel vehicles and equipment (‘retrofit exhaust abatement’). It sets out why operators of diesel vehicles and equipment may want to reduce particulate emissions and provides information on the technical options available for emission reduction.
This guide covers ‘diesel vehicles and equipment’, which includes any mobile item with a diesel engine. For example, emissions from lorries, buses, cars, railway locomotives, inland ships, agricultural machinery and construction equipment can all be addressed.
This guide is intended to be a starting point for those looking at black carbon and particulate matter abatement. Readers who require more information are provided with links to sources of further guidance.
