Emissions after-treatment for light-duty diesels

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    Rising fuel costs and concerns regarding greenhouse gas emissions have resulted in an increase in the number of diesel passenger vehicles both in Europe and the US. The fuel economy improvement is due to the inherently better thermal efficiency of diesel over conventional petrol engines. However, diesels produce higher emissions of nitrogen oxides (NOx) and particulates. Whilst technologies to deal with the latter are well advanced (particulate traps), reducing NOx is more problematic with the automotive industry facing tough challenges in order to comply with European and US emission regulations.
