Automotive Emission Control Strategies

The development of automotive emission control technology over the last three and a half decades is one of the greatest environmental success stories of this century. Compared to the 1960s the emission of motor vehicles has dropped to a fraction, the fuel economy has doubled.


New Innovations Which Changed the Gasoline Emission Scenario are multi-point fuel injection (MPFI), Variable valve timing (VVT), 3 way catalytic converter, Exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) & On-board diagnostic (OBD) whereas for reduction of  Diesel Engine Emission Turbocharger, Fuel injection system, Cooled EGR, After treatment devices such as Oxidation catalyst, Particulate traps, Lean NOx trap & SCR is used. There are some technical & non-technical measures by which emission can be controlled. Non-Technical Control Measures:·Good town planning (low skyscrapers /satellite cities). ·Congestion charges, area-licensing scheme, parking charges, phasing out of vehicles, etc. ·Proper traffic pattern & road…

Automotive Emissions

Air pollution is solid, liquid or gaseous substances that change the natural composition of air. Air pollution sources can be characterized in two categories one from stationary sources & other from mobile sources. Stationary sources of air pollution consists of Combustion of fuels for power and heat, other burning such as incineration or forest fires, Industrial/commercial processes & Solvents and aerosols whereas mobile sources of air pollution are Highway vehicles: cars, trucks, buses, and motorcycles & Off-highway vehicles such as aircraft, boats, locomotives, farm equipment, RVs, construction machinery and lawn mowers.


According to the Environmental Protection Agency, motor vehicles produce around 16 percent of pollutants in the environment. Seventy-five percent of carbon monoxide emissions come from automobiles. The main pollutants from the automotive are carbon monoxide, Volatile organic compounds (VOCs), NOx, Ozone, Lead, Particulate matter (PM), Carbon Dioxide &…

Ban on Pillion Riding

The Karnataka government has banned pillion riding on two-wheelers with engine capacities below 100cc to curb the accidents. The transport department has also banned future registration of two-wheelers below 100cc if they have seats for pillion riders. Karnataka High Court had passed the order in June 2015 while awarding compensation to Hemant, a minor crippled for life in a road accident in Mysore in 2009 while riding pillion on a two-wheeler. 

The notification, while it only mentions which vehicles are banned, does not specify why. It also lists out the engine capacities of the bikes that are banned, of which barring one, all of them fall short of the 100cc mark by anything from 0.3 to 2.3 cubic centimetre. Hero Motocop's Splendor and Passion bikes, TVS Motors' Scooty Pep plus scooter and XL 100 moped are among the vehicles that will be affected by the ban.

The worst to be affected by this decision is the common man. Not everyone can afford a bike; some may choose to go for c…
