"21st Century Emissions Technology" highlights the ongoing need for emission reduction strategies and technologies in transport and off-highway (non-road) mobile machinery. New engine-after-treatment technologies, as well as alternative propulsion units, may all contribute to the solution. As standards become more stringent, it becomes increasingly important to breakdown infrastructure barriers (such as fuels or additives) to the application of these new technologies. Robust measurement capability and techniques will play a key role in the continued development of low emissions vehicles. The issues faced by vehicle machine and engine manufacturers associated with future emission legislation are addressed. Technical strategy is discussed together with the likely direction that research will take in response to these legislative demands. "21st Century Emissions Technology" focuses on reciprocating engines and their application challenges. In addition, measurement techniques, installation dilemmas, and legislation trends will be explored.
This volume provides the reader with the opportunity to read exports that discuss: ongoing challenges; possible solution and their competitive nature; latest achievements, and the visions that they were based on. "21st Century Emissions Technology" is useful reading for all those working in industry groups involved in combustion systems, fuels, fuel and air systems, engine design options, engine control, after-treatment, vehicle and machine systems, emission measurement techniques, and legislation trends.
