The Benefits and Costs of Diesel Particulate Control V Methanol Fuel for the In-Use Urban Bus 870013

This is the latest in a series of papers on the subject of the costs and benefits of diesel particulate control. The initial focus was on new light duty vehicles with a gradual shift to heavy trucks and in-use urban buses. This latest study continues to focus on in-use urban buses with particular emphasis on the costs and benefits of converting these vehicles to methanol rather than diesel fuel. It concludes that conversion to methanol has the potential to bring about enormous reductions in particulate and is very cost beneficial.
