HARC is assisting Purify Fuel Inc.
Diesel Engine Testing Facility
Advanced engine control strategies and after-treatment control strategies are being developed to meet stringent emissions regulations for large diesel engines. HARC's heavy duty diesel testing lab is used to evaluate the best emissions control technologies for diesel engines used in transportation and stationary applications. Other activities for this lab include engine retrofits and in-field testing of emissions from diesel and natural gas engines.
The Diesel Engine Testing Facility is managed by Dr. Yiqun Huang, Senior Research Scientist and Program Director of Engine and Emissions Control. The lab is capable of providing services to industry as well as other interested organizations.

Continuity and collaboration are two key features of work by HARC toward reducing health-threatening emissions from diesel-powered vehicles such as trucks and off-road equipment.
With financial support from the Environmental Defense Fund, Dr. Eduardo (Jay) Olaguer used the HARC microscale air quality model to assess the ozone impacts of oil and gas production facilities in the Eagle Ford Shale.
The phenomenon of wintertime smog at rural oil and gas sites in the Uinta Basin of Utah was the subject of the Uinta Basin Ozone Study (UBOS).
The Benzene and other Toxics Exposure (BEE‐TEX) Study is a field study of exposure to and source attribution of the air toxics: benzene, toluene, ethyl benzene and xylenes (BTEX), as well as other hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) such as formaldehyde and 1,3-butadiene.
