Study of Alternatives to Reduce Driver Exposure to Diesel Exhaust

This research project focused on diesel particulate matter, which was the pollutant of concern. The following idle reduction technologies were considered: automatic shut-down/start-up systems; auxiliary power units; battery air conditioning systems; electrified parking spaces; filtering devices; fuel-operated heaters; shore connection systems; and thermal storage systems. The effort also took into account the different categories of model year engines (i.e., 1990 and earlier, 1991‒1993, 1993‒2007, and 2008 and later).
