Ion Mobility Spectrometry Towards Environmental Volatile Organic Compounds Identification and Quantification: a Comparative Overview over Infrared Spectroscopy

Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) can be extremely toxic and hazardous to expose humans in both indoor and outdoor environments; thus, their detection, correct identification, and accurate quantification are relevant and demanding tasks that need …


Experimental Investigation on Impact of Diethyl Ether Additives with Cashew Nut Shell Liquid Biodiesel Blends on Performance Characteristics of Engine Operating at Optimum Conditions

Stringent emission norms and the fast depletion of fuel led to the use of alternate fuels and additives and work on methods to optimize fuel injection parameters and exhaust gas recirculation. The objective of the study is to investigate the …


Evaluation of On-Board Sensor-Based NOx Emissions from the Heavy-Duty Vehicles in an Inspection and Maintenance Program

Heavy-duty diesel vehicles (HDDVs) are important sources of urban nitrogen oxides (NOx) in an actual application for environmental compliance. The remote on-board sensing (OBS) is a cost-effective emission reduction approach for HDDVs. NOx …

About this journal

Emission Control Science and Technology is a forum for publication of the latest research on control of emissions from mobile and stationary sources. Papers are also welcome on various aspects of development and technology. The investigation may be experimental, theoretical, or computational.

Articles must survive rigorous peer review before they are considered for publication. Examples of topics that may appear in the journal include:

  • Emission control in mobile (road, land, sea, air) and stationary (e.g. power generation, industrial processes) applications.
  • Materials for and formulations of novel substrates and catalysts, such as those used in Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (DOC), Three Way Catalysts (TWC), Diesel Particulate Filters (DPF), Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR), Lean NOx Trap (LNT), combined catalysts (e.g. DPF+SCR or DPF+LNT in one substrate), slip catalysts, or reformer catalysts.
  • Performance of emission control system components such as sensors, injectors for fuel and reducing species, exhaust inserts and mixers, etc.
  • Effects of operational parameters (e.g. flow, temperature, species concentration) and design approaches (sizing, layout, insulation, etc) on regulated and unregulated emissions and emission control system efficiency and performance.
  • Basic and applied research on specific components (e.g. nanoparticles, N2O and other non-regulated pollutants) of emissions and their mitigation.
    System considerations such as engine-out to tailpipe efficiency, optimization, PGM management, and formation of secondary species.
  • Engines, combustion, fuels, or lubricants as they would affect emission reduction technologies or post combustion processes.
  • Testing, durability and compliance such as cycles, certification, aging, NVH, in-field (on-vehicle) performance and analysis, and in-use compliance.
    Analysis of current and future emission regulations (including those in the developing world).
  • Biological and environmental effects of emission control technologies.
