“Biodiesel versus Diesel: A Pilot Study Comparing Exhaust Exposures for Employees at a Rural Municipal Facility” will be published in the September 2010 volume (Vol. 60) of the peer-reviewed Journal of the Air & Waste Management Association. This technical report is authored by four KSC researchers: Nora Traviss and Brett Thelen (Environmental Studies), Jaime Kathryn Ingalls (contract lecturer in Safety Studies), and Dean Melinda Treadwell. It features data collected in part by undergraduate student researchers in the Safety Studies department, and also represents a successful partnership between KSC and the City of Keene, as the field research was conducted on site at the Keene Recycling Center with the support and cooperation of City of Keene staff. It was supported through funding provided by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Centers of Biomedical Research Excellence grant P42 ES07373 and the EPA Science to Achieve Results fellowship grant FP916576.
