Direct injection gasoline engine particulate emissions

Abstract:

Direct fuel injection technology is increasingly being applied to the spark ignition internal combustion engine as one of the many actions required to reduce the CO2 emissions from road transport. Whilst the potential for CO2 reductions is compelling, the technology is not without disadvantages. Early examples typically emitted over an order of magnitude more Particulate Matter (PM) than vehicles with conventional spark ignition engines. Consequently, future revisions to European and North Am...
