Short summary
The paper presents an inventory of black carbon (BC) emissions from diesel sources in Russia. On-road diesel vehicles emitted 21 Gg of BC in 2014; heavy-duty trucks accounted for 60 % of the on-road BC; and cars represent only 5 %. Superemitters emitted 33 % of all on-road BC. BC emissions from off-road diesel engines estimated at 28 Gg. While consuming 68 % of the diesel fuel in the country, on-road vehicles produced only 42 % of BC emissions due to introduction of emission standards.
