A comprehensive guide to establish a program to curtail diesel particulate matter emissions, control pollutants after release in an underground mine environment and reduce exposures using administrative controls.
2/1/2010 - Peer reviewed journal articlesThe results of this study provide more insight into potential advantages and disadvantages of using biodiesel fuels for controlling emissions of aerosols and gases. Using diesel oxidation catalysts to control biodiesel emissions was re-examined.
Effects of Diesel Exhaust Aftertreatment Devices on Concentrations and Size Distribution of Aerosols in Underground Mine Air9/1/2009 - Peer reviewed journal articlesThis paper summarizes the results of a study conducted to evaluate the effects that several types of DPFs, DFEs, and a DOC have on the concentration and size distribution of diesel aerosols in an underground mine.
Effectiveness of Selected Diesel Particulate Matter Control Technologies for Underground Mining Applications: Isolated Zone Study, 20048/1/2006 - Reports of InvestigationsThis study evaluated the effectiveness of the state-of-the-art technologies for controlling DPM and gaseous emissions from underground diesel-powered mining equipment using the isolated zone approach.
12/1/2004 - Peer reviewed journal articlesA commercial version of the BOM impactor, called the DPM Cassette, was recently introduced by SKC®. Tests were conducted to evaluate the performance of the DPM Cassette for measuring diesel-source elemental carbon in the presence of coal dust.
1/31/2019A partnership between the NIOSH Mining Program and its stakeholders to share diesel exhaust health effects solutions.
1/31/2019Register now for the free 1/23/2019 MSHA/NIOSH Diesel Partnership workshop on advanced low-emissions technologies to reduce exposure to diesel exhaust.
2/26/2018 - Research projectsA project to investigate the feasibility of using alternative measurement approaches to quantify both elemental carbon and organic carbon in filter samples of mine air.
2/16/2018 - Research projectsA project to develop and implement workplace solutions to reduce miners’ overexposure to hazardous airborne contaminants emitted from diesel-powered equipment.
12/1/2017 - Peer reviewed journal articlesA paper comparing the potential of FAME biodiesel and HVORD as a control strategy to reduce the exposure of underground miners to aerosols and gases emitted by diesel-powered equipment.
