Methods for particulate, and associated organics, emission control were evaluated in several diesel cars. Of the methods investigated, only 'particulate traps' provided large reductions in particulate emissions. Traps evaluated included metal mesh and ceramic monolithic configurations, catalyzed and uncatalyzed. One of the cars, with a ceramic trap installed, completed eighty thousand kilometers of distance accumulation. No significant deterioration of emissions occurred over those eighty thousand kilometers.
