Automotive Emissions and Its Control provides an up-to-date reference to academicians and professionals on emissions from SI and CI engines powered vehicles and its control technologies. In this book engine design, engine emissions, impact of emitted pollutants on environment, worldwide vehicle emission standards etc. are presented. The pollutant emission control technologies like improvement in engine design, fuel pretreatment, use of alternative fuels, fuel additives, exhaust treatment or better tuning of the combustion process etc. are discussed in the detail. The recent developments on exhaust aftertreatment such as cold start emission control, NSR, SCR and diesel particulate filters etc. are covered in the book.
