'Biodiesel' fuel could reduce truck pollution
Diesel fuel made from natural renewable sources such as vegetable oils or animal fats can lower air-polluting emissions of heavy trucks without modifying the engines. The finding is reported in the journal Environmental Science & Technology. (2000-03-14)

Toxicologists discover traces of diesel exhaust in the body
Dutch toxicologists have discovered substances in the bodies caused by diesel exhaust which can act as bio-markers. Such markers are necessary to determine health risks in the workplace. Until now, the risk of lung cancer from inhaling diesel particles has been assessed on the basis of lung cancer in related occupational groups. (2000-02-21)

UF research suggests widely used models may under predict pollution
New research by a University of Florida professor suggests the complex computer models underlying regulations on pollution from cars and other sources in many of the nation's largest cities may significantly underestimate pollution levels. (2000-01-23)

Road dust: Rural vehicles emit more pollutants than urban ones
So much for fresh country air. An environmental engineer at Washington University in St. Louis has tested an urban and rural site for vehicular air pollutants, including road dust, and has found that rural vehicles meit more pollutant per mile travelled than urban ones. (2000-01-18)

Coal-derived fuel burns cleaner
The chemical that replaced fluoro-chloro carbons in spray cans may also serve as a replacement utility fuel and may even substitute for diesel fuel in the future, according to Penn State researchers. (1999-10-12)

NRC opens virtual environment centre
The National Research Council of Canada (NRC) officially opened its Virtual Environment Technologies (VET) Centre at NRC's Integrated Manufacturing Technologies Institute in London, Ontario. It houses the world's most extensive and innovative collection of virtual reality equipment. This technology literally puts medical specialists into a diseased human artery or allows civic designers, architects and politicians to walk around in a virtual city before they build it. (1999-09-24)

Ship sulfur emissions found to strongly impact worldwide ocean and coastal pollution
Ship emissions are a dominant contributor to atmospheric sulfur dioxide concentrations over much of the world's oceans and in several coastal regions, researchers from Carnegie Mellon University and Duke University report in a Nature article today. (1999-08-19)

New Technology Turns French Fry Oil Into Diesel Fuel
The vegetable oil used to cook crispy, golden french fries may soon power diesel engines. Researchers at the DOE's Idaho National Engineering and Environmental Laboratory have found that used french fry oil can be converted into an environmentally friendly diesel fuel faster and less expensively than current processes while producing an even higher grade fuel. (1999-03-10)

Increase In Number Of Diesel Cars Is Counterproductive For Environmental Goals
New diesel cars are more detrimental to the environment and to health than new petrol-driven cars. Diesel cars have improved considerably over the last ten years, but exhaust emission control technology in petrol-driven cars has developed faster. This is the result of a study commissioned by the Swedish government and performed by the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency. (1998-11-18)

15 Drugs, Dyes And Other Chemicals Newly Listed As Known Or Likely Human Carcinogens
The National Toxicology Program,headquartered at the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, today announced the addition of 14 substances--including several diesel combustion products--to the 184 already included in the federal government's official list of known or (1998-05-14)

ORNL Researchers Developing Cost-Effective Ceramic Valves For Advanced Heat Engines
Researchers at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory have participated in the development of ceramic valves that offer longer life and better durability. The valves were developed as part of the Ceramic Technology Project, a program for the development of an industrial technology base to provide reliable and cost-effective, high- temperature ceramic components for advanced heat engines. (1997-03-19)

KU Researcher Adds A Dose Of Sugar To Diesel Fuel
A University of Kansas researcher develops a recipe for an alternative diesel fuel using agriculture resources. The recipe begins with a liberal dose of sugar. The primary goal is to demonstrate technology that can convert farm byproducts and surplusgrains into sugar for use as the primary component in fuel for diesel engines (1996-11-14)

Ceramic Lubricants, Ashless Fuel Additives Developed At Virginia Tech
A Virginia Tech researcher's work on a new concept in lubrication based on the concept of tribopolymerization (patent # 5,407,601 April 18, 1995) has resulted in several compounds that promise to save billions of dollars in fuel, and that have now been licensed for further development (1996-08-14)
