Automobile Engine Development, Task Force Assessment, Preliminary Report.
Caretto, L. S.; And Others
This report presents a comprehensive survey of current knowledge and ongoing research and development projects in the area of vehicular emissions and control. Information provided attempts to answer the questions: how can proposed standards be met with existing technology and what additional research would be required to obtain desired control effectively and economically? The survey covers basic pollutant formation processes, emission characteristics of conventional and non-conventional engines, current and proposed control techniques, alternative power plants, special problems of chemical analysis of vehicle emissions, and effects of fuels and additives. Although no specific projects are recommended for Project Clean Air, the areas of Catalysis, Basic Combustion, Conventional Engine Development, Non-Conventional Engines, and Battery Development are proposed as basic study areas. The report was prepared by one of seven special task forces studying various air pollution problems, particularly in California, with the aim of making tentative recommendations as to what the University of California can do through Project Clean Air to alleviate these problems.
