What is a Diesel Particle Filter (DPF)?

A diesel particulate filter (or DPF) is a device designed to remove diesel particulate matter or soot from the exhaust gas of a diesel engine. In Europe, the exhaust emissions standards for new cars have effectively required fitment of a DPF in the exhaust of all diesel cars since 2009, when the 'Euro 5' standard came into force. In fact, many cars registered before 2009 will have had one fitted too in anticipation of the change in standards. Standards aim to deliver an 80% reduction in diesel particulate (soot) emissions.

Can India adapt DPF's to control PM pollution from diesel vehicles?
An analysis was presented as part of the India-California Air Quality Management (ICAMP) program assessment report.
