This report presents an approach for determining ranges of concern for vehicle emissions of toxic unregulated pollutants. The information used in deriving this approach was generated either in-house at EPA or under EPA contract to Midwest Research Institute in Kansas City, Missouri; and/or Southwest Research Institute in San Antonio, Texas. This work represents an EPA technical effort designed as one input that may bear on EPA policy with respect to implementation of section 202(a)(4) of the Clean Air Act amendments of 1977. As such, this report does not represent EPA policy at this time. This report will also be of interest to parties outside EPA, such as the automobile manufacturers, who are involved with deciding whether unregulated pollutants from motor vehicles constitute a public health hazard. This approach, outlined in the subsequent sections of this report, has four separate parts, the last of which is a summary of the previous three. An example of how the approach works is presented for a sample mobile source pollutant; sulfuric acid (H2SO4).
