WHAT ARE THE MAJOR SOURCES OF DIESEL PM?

The major sources of diesel PM are on-road and off-road vehicles powered by diesel engines. In addition to cars, trucks, and buses, diesel engines are used in construction vehicles, agricultural equipment, trains, and marine vessels. Diesel engines are also used to generate electricity on both an emergency and routine basis, and are also found on cranes, drilling equipment, and portable pumps.
