Abstract: The recent introduction of a Particle Number (PN) limit of 6×1011 #/km for all Direct Injection Gasoline (G-DI) vehicles registered in Europe after September 2017, is expected to necessitate a widespread application of Gasoline Particulate Filters (GPF). It is therefore important to assess whether the associated implementation costs can be justified on the basis of the societal benefits. Monetary valuation of externalities originating from the reduction of PN and Black Carbon (BC) emissions, accounting for any fuel consumption and CO2 penalties, provided evidence that a GPF installation can be a cost effective solution. Emission projections up to 2030, revealed that the three years delay in the implementation year, will introduce a relatively limited burden on the future air quality, owing to the currently limited population of G-DIs
