The report discusses an investigation of three types of devices that might be used for the aftertreatment of diesel exhaust to lower particulate emissions from light-duty vehicles. The devices are filters, electrostatic precipitators (ESPs), and wet scrubbers. The conclusions reached are that filters and ESPs merit further consideration, but wet scrubbers do not. Wet scrubbers were eliminated from further consideration on the basis of excessive size, low efficiency, and excessive fluid loss by evaporation (assuming that water is the fluid of choice). Filters and ESPs, although appearing to offer significant potential, have possible disadvantages that can only be assessed experimentally. Prototype filters and electrostatic devices that appear worthy of experimental study are described.
