Diesel Aerosols and Gases in Underground Mines
Diesel engines are a major contributor to concentrations of submicron aerosols, CO, CO2, NOX, SO2 and hydrocarbons (HC) in underground coal and metal/nonmetal mines.  The extensive use of diesel-powered equipment in underground mines makes it challenging to control workers’ exposure to submicron aerosols and noxious gases emitted by those engines.

Controls Being Used to Reduce Diesel Particulate Matter Exposures
MSHA identified mines that were having difficulty meeting the DPM limit.  To provide further assistance, MSHA then visited approximately 60 of the mines that were experiencing difficulty complying with the DPM standard.  As part of these visits, DPM exposures were measured and control technologies for DPM were observed and assessed.
