Abstract
The Bureau of Mines, the Canadian center for mineral and energy technology, and the Ontario Ministry of Labour have been working together for several years toward the reduction of diesel pollutants released into the underground mine air. Their studies have included the development of an in-mine air quality laboratory for the testing and development of particulate scrubbing devices for on-vehicle removal of diesel particulate matter, the investigation of the mutagenicity of diesel particulate matter collected underground, the development of the relationships among various gaseous and solid diesel pollutants, and various sampling and monitoring methods and strategies for the continual assessment of the effectiveness of exhaust control devices as used in practice. All of this work resulted in the perfection of two devices (a venturi scrubber and a ceramic flowthrough filter) for the removal of the particulate matter from the exhaust stream since it is this component which is thought to carry the potential long-term health hazard.
