Description:

This Environmental Technology Verification Program test/QA plan for heavy-duty diesel engine testing at the Southwest Research Institute’s Department of Emissions Research 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. This plan describes the test and QA procedures that will satisfy the specifications of the Generic Verification Protocol (GVP) for Determination of Emissions Reductions Obtained by Use of Alternative or Reformulated Liquid Fuels, Fuel Additives, Fuel Emulsions, and Lubricants for Highway and Nonroad Use Diesel Engines and Light Duty Gasoline Engines and Vehicles developed under the authority of the APCT Center at RTI. This testing, based on the FTP, is to quantify the effectiveness of “commercial ready” fuel and lubricant modifications for reducing emissions of oxides of nitrogen (NOx), hydrocarbons (HCs), particulate matter (PM), and carbon monoxide (CO) that are intended for use on diesel and light duty gasoline engines considered mobile sources of air pollution. A description of a specific technology, engine to be tested, and test-specific details will be documented as a test-specific addendum to this document.
