Conclusion and Future Activities: 1. This testing showed that the aged SMF systems with substantial number of hours in operation were still very effective in reducing number and surface area concentrations of aerosols emitted by tested diesel engines. 2. The aging did not change how the SMF systems affected gaseous emissions. The effects on CO and NO emissions were still relatively minor. It appears that a measurable fraction of NO was consumed by soot oxidation process. 3. NIOSH and Vale are currently conducting a study at the NIOSH Diesel Laboratory at Office of Mining Safety and Health Research (OMSHR) with objective of assessing the effects of fuel additives on emissions of aerosolized metals and hydrocarbons.
