Abstract
During the 1980's, the Mine Safety and Health Administration proposed new regulations for the use of diesel equipment in underground coal mines, and the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health recommended that whole diesel exhaust be regarded as "a potential occupational carcinogen," and that reductions in exposure to exhaust pollutants would reduce excess risk. During the same time, the Bureau of Mines tested new emission control technology to minimize diesel emissions. The objectives of this paper are to discuss the major issues regarding diesel exhaust emissions, especially diesel particulate matter, and to highlight emission controls that will be available.
