I'm not so sure about it, but it doesn't seem so likely.

Might the use of E0, instead of 10% ethanol blends, also reduce particulate air pollution?
I'd also not hold my breath for that. Even though ethanol may be harder to fully vaporize on port-injection engines, with DI it has been possible to avoid pre-heating of the fuel as a cold-starting aid. Trimming the AFR a little leaner at the cold starts might help to decrease the PM emissions in a worst-case scenario.
