Air Quality Effects of Alternative Fuels: Final Report

Research output: NRELSubcontract Report


Despite more than two decades of work directed at improving air quality, many of our largest urban areas still experience regular exposures to pollution levels that exceed the National Ambient Air Quality Standards. One of the goals of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Alternative Fuel Utilization Program is to assess the potential benefits to air quality of replacing gasoline with other fuels.As part of this work, DOE's National Renewable Energy Laboratory commissioned a study of air quality effects using photochemical grid model simulations of hypothetical fuel replacement scenarios. This report covers the results of that study.
