The vehicle scored well for 'Global Warming Potential' and 'Photochemical Oxidant
It also results in the release of 81% less photochemical oxidant
TOKYO - A record number of 28 of Japan's 47 prefectures issued photochemical oxidant
smog warnings in 2007, including Niigata and Oita prefectures, which issued warnings for the first time, the Environment Ministry said in a report Tuesday.
Ozone, a photochemical oxidant
insmog, is considered by the government's National Crop Loss Assessment Network to account for about 90 percent of U.S.
Intercontinental transport of aerosols and photochemical oxidants
from Asia and its consequences.
Nevertheless, the same authors agree that such measurements may only be proposed after improving the current state-of-the-art in the main parameters involved in the formation of photochemical oxidants
. This is particularly important for Spain where the experimental evidence of oxidants and precursors is very limited (MILLAN et al., 1991; SANCHEZ; SANZ, 1994; ZURITA; CASTRO, 1983).
The air that man breaths is polluted by industrial and automobile emissions bringing them into the atmosphere suspended articulate matter (SPM), oxides of sulphur and nitrogen, carbon monoxide, photochemical oxidants
 VOCs (volatile organic compounds): As a source of suspended particulate matter and photochemical oxidants
, major emitters of VOCs are regulated under the Air Pollution Prevention Law.
Many solvents undergo chemical reactions in the atmosphere, leading to a number of indirect effects, including the formation of photochemical oxidants
While air pollution from coal no longer plagues urban areas, that from diesel vehicles and other aspects of modern life, including precursor chemicals, which give rise to photochemical oxidants
, exact a major avoidable price on our health.
One of EPA's primary uses of its Cray T3E system will be to model harmful atmospheric pollutants, such as carbon dioxide, sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxide, photochemical oxidants
and particulate matter.
