Mobile Source Air Toxics Research, Analysis and Outreach

The purpose of this research project is to build on the current state of the practice and activities that the transportation community is undertaking as it relates to Mobile Source Air Toxins (MSAT) emissions analysis. The goal is to use case studies and the recent Motor Vehicle Emission Simulator (MOVES2014) model and other research efforts to update information provided to transportation practitioners and stakeholders. The required use of MOVES2014 and the need to provide technical assistance to the users of the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) MSAT Interim Guidance will also mean that the interim guidance and existing tools need to be updated. Evaluation of the National Near Road Detroit data will be used to enhance understanding of the emissions in the near road environment. Additionally, an assessment will be conducted of MSAT technical assistance and resources currently available, and two supporting documents on the FHWA Air Toxics webpage will be updated.
