Authors: Ma, Jian Xin

Issue Date: Apr-1994

Abstract: According to the 1989 Government White Paper on the environment, suspended particulate matter is one of the most serious pollution problems in Hong Kong. Government figures show that about 44% of the airborne particulate matter is emitted by diesel-powered vehicles. Diesel-powered vehicles are widely used in Hong Kong because they have high thermal efficiency and are more lax on fuel requirements. Both of these factors translate into better fuel economy.
