Motivation
Diesel engines move the world, transporting goods and people on roads, rails, and waterways. Fuel efficiency and, related to this, relatively low CO2 emissions are the reasons for the tremendous success of diesel engines in the past, and perspectives for the near future indicate a further growth.
However, exposure to diesel exhaust is associated with various adverse health effects. Based on the proven genotoxicity of dozens of its constituents, diesel exhaust is judged as mutagenic and carcinogenic to humans.
