3.1 Introduction

Environmental, ecological, and health problems require the increasingly stringent emissions regulations of harmful and toxic gases. These regulations include corresponding limits on nitrogen oxides (NOx), particulate matter (PM), carbon monoxide (CO), and hydrocarbons (HC) emissions from vehicle engines [1]. Greenhouse gas emissions, such as CO2, are also under increasing scrutiny [2]. Diesel engine exhaust contains a number of a potent carcinogens connected with PM that has also an appreciable effect on the environment. ...
