AFV School Bus Connection

Post by Frank » Fri Mar 23, 2007 9:34 pm

The Alternative Fuel Vehicles Institute held a webcast about alternative fuels for school buses on March 13, 2007. The concern is about the health impacts of vehicle exhaust, especially particulate matter and NOx emissions:
  • Over the past decade, dozens of studies from all over the world have shown that spending time in close proximity to heavy traffic, especially diesel truck traffic, is associated with a wide range of morbidity effects, as well as increased mortality
  • Diesel exhaust particulate (DEP) declared a toxic air contaminant by ARB in 1998

The webcast is about 90 minutes long so get yourself some coffee and unplug the phone before you start.
