Alternative Fuel Use to Reduce Diesel Emissions Exposure and Toxicity

Exposures to diesel particulate matter in underground mining often exceed existing standards. Alternative fuel blends are being employed to reduce exposures to miners, yet there is inadequate information on how these fuels change emission exposures and the resulting health effects. This study compares exposures and toxicity from the use of diesel and alternative fuels in underground mines. This study is funded by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health.
