Description:

This ETV test/QA plan for heavy-duty diesel engine testing at the Southwest Research Institute’s Department of Emissions Research (DER) describes how the Federal Test Procedure (FTP), as listed in 40 CFR Part 86 for highway engines and 40 CFR Part 89 for nonroad engines, will be specifically implemented for this testing program. This plan describes the test and QA procedures that will satisfy the specifications of the Generic Verification Protocol (GVP) for Diesel Exhaust Catalysts, Particulate Filters, and Engine Modification Control Technologies for Highway and Nonroad Use Diesel Engines developed under the authority of the APCT Center at RTI. This testing, based on the FTP, is to quantify the effectiveness of “commercial ready” emissions control technologies for oxides of nitrogen (NOX), hydrocarbons (HCs), particulate matter (PM), and carbon monoxide (CO) that are intended for use on diesel engines considered mobile sources of air pollution.
