This policy brief summarizes findings from a research project which examined how natural gas infrastructure can be economically and technologically synergistic for natural gas and renewable natural gas in the near term.
In this study, both stationary and comprehensive mobile monitoring platforms were developed to measure PM concentration and traffic conditions on some major highways in Southern California. The main objective is to develop a set of alternative metrics that measure particle concentrations as well as particle size.
