Volume II of the report is a compendium of detailed emission and test data from field tests of a large-bore, compression-ignition reciprocating engine burning diesel fuel. The engine was tested during two operating modes: at baseline (normal operation), and with fuel injection retard for NOx emission reduction to levels below the proposed new source performance standard (NSPS) for such engines. The test data include preliminary equipment calibration, detailed engine operation, and complete exhaust gas emission measurement results. Exhaust gas emission measurements included (in addition to continuous monitoring for criteria gas pollutants) monitoring for volatile hydrocarbons (C1-C6), particulates, sulfur oxides, total organics in two boiling point ranges, organic compounds, semivolatile organic priority pollutants, trace elements, and biological assays of organic sample extracts.
