Abstract: The increasing evidence of the health effects attributed to particles generated in internal combustion engines has led several governments to investigate new and advanced methods to measure such particles. Such investigations have been carried out during the past years within the UN-ECE GRPE Particulate Measurement Programme (PMP), where UK, Germany, France, Sweden, Switzerland, Greece, Japan and Korea have participated, while other similar investigations have gone ahead in the US. The PMP has now completed its validation programme for the method designed for measuring the number of particles emitted by light-duty vehicles and is about to start the validation programme for the testing procedure related to heavy-duty engines. The results of this programme were already referred to in the upcoming EURO-5 legislation and similar interest has been shown for inclusion in the EURO-VI legislation. At the same time there has been increasing interest to participate in the programme throughout the world with other countries recently joining. The scope of the session was: • To compare results of the LD PMP interlab exercise (2003-2006), • To present the result of other investigations such as the Swiss and CARB PMPlike programmes • To stimulate the exchange of information and views between the different approaches for PM emission measurement; • To discuss the latest technological and regulatory developments regarding measurements of PM; • To define the programme for the HD-PMP Interlab exercise (with probable worldwide participation, EU, USA, Canada etc..) Topics: • PMP LD interlaboratory validation exercise and other similar investigations (AECC, Swiss, CARB, etc…), lessons learned, further investigations needed, problems and solutions, etc. • Kick-off for the PMP HD interlaboratory validation exercise, participation of other labs, presentation of golden measurement system, discussion on the time-table • Instruments for PM emission measurements, validation, calibration, new techniques, etc. • Devices for abatement of particles, PM traps, etc. • Legislation for the abatement of PM from vehicles in Europe and the world.
