About this report
This project was commissioned by the Commonwealth Department of the Environment, Water, Heritage and the Arts (DEWHA) to undertake a pilot program to test and report on the emissions for small petrol powered engines commonly used in domestic garden equipment.
The objectives of the project were to:
- Obtain information on the environmental performance of small engines that are not certified to North American or European emission regulations, based on emission testing of a sample of these engines.
- Understand the environmental performance of the tested engines in relation to the performance of small engines which are certified to North American and European regulations.
