Description

This IMechE conference transaction volume address the issues faced by vehicle machine and engine manufacturers associated with future emission legislation.

21st Century Emissions Technology provides the reader with the opportunity to read expert reports that discuss: ongoing challenges; possible solutions, and their competitive nature; latest achievement, and the visions that they were based on.

The book is essential 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.
