1 Diesel Soot Pollution in School Buses & Benefits of Retrofit Emissions Controls BRUCE HILL, Ph.D., Senior Scientist, James Gooch, Research Assistant Clean Air Task Force, Boston, MA

2 According to NAPT, Riding to School on a Bus is the Statistically Safest Way to Get to School but is it the Healthiest? 2

3 A number of studies have documented cabin air pollution in school buses But is it roadway pollution or is the bus polluting itself? 3

4 Our research shows that cabin pollution can come from both the roadway and the bus itself. But in quiet residential areas with no nearby diesels, spikes in cabin pollution at bus stops confirms significant selfpollution 4

5 Most Importantly, This Study Demonstrates that Retrofit Emissions Controls can Virtually Eliminate Diesel Soot Self-Pollution from Schools Buses 5

6 Goals Investigate causes of PM pollution on conventional school bus; Retrofit same buses to assess cabin benefits. 6

7 Measurements / Instrumentation Particle Parameters Measured: PM2.5-Fine Particles Ultrafine Particles Carbon Soot Particle Toxics /PAH 7

8 Methods: Lead Car is Control 8

9 Methods, cont d: Buses: fleet mid-age and mileage; Bus windows up; Typical bus route selected by fleet mgr one minute stops; 9

10 Bus Retrofit Combinations Tested City Conventional DPF DOC Spiracle ULSD CNG Enviroguard Detroit/Ann Arbor MI X Detroit/Ann Arbor MI X Detroit/Ann Arbor MI X X Detroit/Ann Arbor MI X Detroit/Ann Arbor MI X Detroit/Ann Arbor MI X X Detroit/Ann Arbor MI X X X Detroit/Ann Arbor MI X X Detroit/Ann Arbor MI X Detroit/Ann Arbor MI X X X Atlanta, GA X Atlanta, GA X X Chicago, IL X Chicago, IL X X Charlotte NC X Charlotte NC X Charlotte NC X X X Charlotte NC X X Charlotte NC X Houston/Conroe X Houston/Conroe X Houston/Conroe X X X Houston/Conroe X Biodiesel (B99) 10

14 Where is the Cabin Pollution Coming From? 14

15 Cabin Pollution Sources: Tailpipe & Crankcase 15

16 Retrofit Tests 16

17 Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) 17

18 DPF is VERY effective at removing all particle types from Tailpipe 18

19 Tailpipe Retrofit Bus Leaves No Exhaust at Bus Stop. Eliminates self pollution. 19

20 Despite Tailpipe Filter, Fine Particle Pollution in Cabin PM 2.5 Ultrafine PM DPF RUN 2 100,000 80,000 PM 2.5 (ug/m3) ,000 40,000 20,000 Ultrafine Particle Count (particle/cc) ,000 Elapsed Time (Minutes) 20

21 WHY? Engine Crankcase Test: Closed Crankcase Filtration (CCF) CCF: reroutes emissions to intake manifold. 21

22 Complete Solution DPF-ULSD-CCF Ultrafine and Fine Particles Eliminated PM2.5 (ug/m3) Ultrafine PM (black) PM 2.5 (red) Ambient Subtracted Elapsed Time (Minutes) Ultrafine Particle Count (particles/cc) 22

24 Non-Retrofit Buses Fine Particles Elevated Net PM 2.5 (ug/m3) AA 1 AA 2 ATL 1 ATL 2 ATL 3 CHI 1 CHI 2 CHI 3 CHI 4 CHL Elapsed Time (minutes) 24

25 All Buses w/ Closed Crankcase Regardless of retrofit configuration, if bus has Spiracle CCF, PM2.5 is close to ambient in cabin 200 Net PM 2.5 (ug/m3) AA SP.1 CHL SP.1 AA DPF.SP.1 AA DPF.SP.2 CHL DPF.SP.1 AA DOC.SP.1 AA DOC.SP.2 CHL B99.SP.1 CHL B99.SP Elapsed Time (Minutes) 25

26 Conclusions (in-cabin only) Fine Particle source is dominantly engine crankcase (CCF is solution) Ultrafine, Black Carbon, Toxic Particle source is tailpipe (Removed by DPF) Ultimate Solution requires both a DPF and Closed Crankcase Filtration Device 26
