NOx and particulate matter exhaust emission standards for heavy-duty highway compression-ignition engines apply to the engines used in refuse trucks. It is important to quantify the effectiveness of emissions control measures, e.g., DPF and SCR for real-world roll-off refuse truck duty cycles. A discussion covers the emissions standards applicable to refuse trucks, driving cycles, and exhaust emissions related to refuse truck emissions measurements in a laboratory; and how driving cycles and cycle average emissions are represented using the operating modes defined in EPA?s MOtor Vehicle Emission Simulator model. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the AWMA's 107th Annual Conference & Exhibition (Long Beach, CA 6/24-27/2014).
