Particulate Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons and Particulate Matter Emissions From Two-Wheel Motor Vehicles 2005-24-020
Two-wheeled powered motor vehicles are an important pollutant
source especially in urban areas. ENEA, in cooperation with
Municipality of Rome, carried out an experimental activity aimed at
evaluate particulate matter (PM) and polycyclic aromatic
hydrocarbons (PAHs) emissions from two-wheel motor vehicles.
In this paper, cold and hot PM and particulate PAHs emissions
from eight 2-stroke 50 cc in-use mopeds, (3 pre-Euro I, 3 Euro I
and 2 Euro II) and four 4-stroke 150 cc in-use scooters (2 pre-Euro
I and 2 Euro I), are presented. Mopeds and scooters were tested
according to ECE-47 and ECE-40 driving cycles, respectively.
Obtained results show that two-wheel motor vehicles are
important pollution sources of PM and PAHs and their contribution
should be considered in urban emission inventories. Referring to
2003 Italian fleet activity data results obtained in this work show
that in urban areas mopeds contribution to particulate matter
emissions is 1.6 x 106 kg. This figure is comparable with the
diesel passenger cars contribution of 2 x 106 kg., calculated
from hot PM emissions factors reported in COPERT III database.
