Diesel Vehicle Emissions and Urban Air Quality

December 1993

Second Report of the Quality of Urban Air Review Group

Prepared at the request of the Department of the Environment

In the First Report of this Review Group (not available on the web), attention was drawn to the major impact of motor vehicle emissions upon urban air quality.
In this Second Report, the Review Group seeks to refine its analysis of vehicular impacts by comparing petrol and diesel vehicle emissions and examining the likely future consequences of an increased market penetration of diesel cars.
