EETD researcher Don Lucas participated in a recent multivolume University of California study of the gasoline additive MTBE. Along with fellow researchers Bob Sawyer and Cathy Koshland, Lucas studied the effects of MTBE on air emissions from vehicles. The study, "Health and Environmental Assessment of MTBE," was delivered to the Governor and the California legislature in November 1998. The full text and other downloadable documents pertaining to MTBE are available on the web.
