Abstract

The efforts to meet the National Ambient Air quality standards (NAAQS) by investigating emission reduction strategies for school buses was discussed. Based on the idle emissions measurements it was observed that the current NJ school bus fleet produces approximately 9.3 million kg CO2, 90,000 kg CO, 150,000 kg NOx and 2145 kg PM per school year. It was observed from mobile fuel testing results that as ambient temperature increases, CO emission decrease due to a more complete conversion of CO to CO2. It was also found that particulate matter (PM) measurements did not show any relationship between temperature, humidity or fuel consumption.
