In California, the State Dept. of Public Health has established motor vehicle emission standards for exhaust hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide and smoke; for fuel tank and carburetor evaporative losses; and for crankcase hydrocarbon emissions. The data on which the standards are based and the need for improved measurement procedures are discussed.
At this time, exhaust emission standards for oxides of nitrogen and for odor are being considered as additional standards. Future standards may rate hydrocarbon emissions according to their smog potential. Another possible change that is discussed is to specify the quantity rather than the concentration of pollutants that may be emitted from the exhaust of motor vehicles.
