Toxicité des émissions diesel et gestion du risque relatif

Abstract : The globalized world in which we live cannot be imagined without motorized transport. Among the available engine technologies, diesel is probably the most popular. Despite its many advantages, the pollutant emission inherent in its mode of operation (nitrogen oxides and soot) are not without concern. This work is intended to be transversal and concerns the description of the composition of the diesel exhaust, the study of the toxicity due to diesel emissions and the management of the risk relating to the toxicity of these emissions. The toxicity of diesel emissions is mainly due to oxidative stress and inflammatory mechanisms, for acute effects. From the point of view of their chronic toxicity, diesel emissions are now classified in IARC group I : carcinogenic to humans. The management of the risk goes through law (emissions standards Euro and vehicle inspection) and by technical answers (emission control devices). However, recent events have shown that diesel emissions are largely underestimated.
