All gasoline powered vehicles and equipment create exhaust and evaporative and refueling emissions. Unlike exhaust emissions, which occur only when the engine is operating, evaporative emissions (evap emissions) occur all the time. Controlling evap emissions to PZEV levels is as challenging as controlling exhaust emissions. It becomes even more important in the case of plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV) and extended range electric vehicles (EREV) which generate evaporative fuel vapors, but have no place to burn/consume the vapors when the engine does not operate for extended periods of time....

Meeting the requirements of heavy-duty engine emissions regulations is a challenge for all engine manufacturers. Since the introduction of Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) in medium and heavy-duty diesel engines, these systems have become more sophisticated and tightly integrated with emission control systems. This 2-day seminar will explore the advantages and disadvantages of EGR and the most effective implementation of various EGR systems. This seminar will begin by defining EGR and why it is used in diesel engines, along with an explanation of the mechanisms by which EGR is able to reduce NOx....

On-board diagnosis of engine and transmission systems has been mandated by government regulation for light and medium vehicles since the 1996 model year. The regulations specify many of the detailed features that on-board diagnostics must exhibit. In addition, the penalties for not meeting the requirements or providing in-field remedies can be very expensive. This course is designed to provide a fundamental understanding of how and why OBD systems function and the technical features that a diagnostic should have in order to ensure compliant and successful implementation. Fundamental design objectives...

Public awareness regarding pollutants and their adverse health effects has created an urgent need for engineers to better understand the combustion process as well as the pollutants formed as by-products of that process. To effectively contribute to emission control strategies and design and develop emission control systems and components, a good understanding of the physical and mathematical principles of the combustion process is necessary. This seminar will bring issues related to combustion and emissions "down to earth," relying less on mathematical terms and more on physical explanations and...

Future vehicles will become even more complex as the demand for fuel efficient, electric, hybrid and self-driving vehicles lead to new technologies, materials and chemicals in vehicle manufacturing. Automobiles are ‘complex durable goods’ using thousands of chemicals and substances. Demands to ensure recycling of vehicle components leading to full vehicle recycling are increasing. This session will examine the future of recycling. In particular, it will focus on opportunities to explore technologies unique to the automotive industry related to overall recycling, emission benefits from manufacturing, disposal, repurposing, etc.

Event
Future vehicles will incorporate new technologies, new materials, chemicals and substances to meet aggressive emissions standards, self-driving vehicle safety requirements, and consumer demands. At the same time, federal & state regulators, plaintiffs’ attorneys, and consumers are adding more legal and regulatory activities for automobile manufacturers. This session will examine how the federal government is expanding its role in regulating the materials used in future vehicles (e.g., TSCA and CICA), how states are expanding their roles in regulating the vehicles and auto parts sold in their states, and how others are using this expanding regulatory sphere to address emerging issues of public health, safety and environmental protection.

Abstract Life-cycle assessments (LCAs) conducted, to date, of the end-of-life phase of vehicles rely significantly on assumed values and extrapolations within models. The end phase of vehicles, however, has become all the more important as a consequence of increasing regulatory requirements on materials recovery, tightening disposal restrictions, and the rapid introduction of new materials and electronics, all potentially impacting a vehicle's efficacy for achieving greater levels of sustainability. This article presents and discusses selected research results of a comprehensive gate-to-gate life-cycle-inventory (LCI) of end-of-life vehicle (ELV) dismantling and shredding processes, constructed through a comprehensive and detailed case study, and argues that managing and implementing creative dismantling practices can improve significantly the recovery of both reusable and recyclable materials from end-of-life vehicles. Although the amount of parts and materials recovered and directed for reuse, remanufacturing or recycling may be as much as 11.6% by weight of the ELVs entering a dismantling process [1], greater rates of reuse and/or recycling may be achieved by the strategic management of the ELVs entering the dismantling process according to age.

Pd based catalysts has not been considered sufficient for converting methane to carbon dioxide for lean-CNG applications mainly in terms of durability, which finally impact the performance on long period. In the present investigation, we were addressed the substantial improvement of Pd-based catalyst with respect to its durability and initial activity. To obtain this, primarily the improvement was mainly achieved based on the new insight on the deactivation routes of Pd-based catalysts under normal operating condition of lean-CNG engines using various physicochemical tools. In addition, optimal engine control logic was carried in second stage of catalysts development by keeping the catalyst more durable. The system, comprised of improved Pd-based catalyst and engine control logic, has demonstrated the capability of complying EURO-6 regulations.

New rounds of stringent nitrogen oxides (NOx) emissions reduction regulations in Europe (Euro 6c) and North America (CARB LEV III, EPA Tier 3) are driving the optimization of existing diesel exhaust aftertreatment systems. Urea - Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) systems are among the de-NOx technologies that have been successfully introduced in recent years. The new regulations are bringing a closer look to SCR de-NOx performance particularly during the cold start phase of the existing emissions certification cycles. This presentation will review some of the options under consideration to address cold start NOx emissions. Some of these approaches impose new and more severe requirements on the urea injection function – these are also reviewed as well as the response to these requirements by the injection system designers.

One of the most important aspects of meeting emission standards is catalyst robustness. Emissions must be met at high mileage, termed “full useful life”, which is 150,000 mi for light and medium duty vehicles under Tier3/LEV3. Catalyst durability is application and system specific. Full useful life aging and correlations to accelerated aging schemes typically include both hydrothermal exposure and chemical poisoning. Robustness tests are designed to exceed the limits of a particular catalyst or filter material and test to failure. New aging schemes and robustness tests are needed when new technologies such as cold start traps for HC and NOx, gasoline particle filters, and SCR coated filters are incorporated into conventional three-way and diesel exhaust systems. This presentation will include a summary of recent emission certifications and publications by various vehicle manufacturers, aging and robustness testing of conventional exhaust systems, as well as a look into the durability of future emission control technologies.
