India is fast catching up with global emission regulation trends, which will translate into world class products with the implementation of Euro V and Automatic transmission standards by 2015.

It is not uncommon for Indian companies to encounter situations that require ingenious engineering combined with a uniquely Indian approach to problem solving.

Essar Oil, on Tuesday, said it has commissioned a unit that would produce Euro-V grade diesel at its Vadinar refinery in Gujarat.

The 4-million tonnes a year diesel hydrotreater unit-I (DHDT-I) “will upgrade diesel quality by treating the sour diesel streams and achieving reduction in sulphur as well as an improvement in the cetane index,” the company said in a statement.

This report highlights a problem currently being experienced by new Euro IV and V heavy-duty trucks and buses: Despite meeting more stringent regulatory standards for exhaust emissions during type approval, many vehicles equipped with selective catalytic reduction (SCR) systems have significantly elevated emissions of nitrogen oxides (NOx) durin

This report focuses on heavy-duty natural gas engine technologies that can achieve Euro III, IV, V and VI emission compliance levels. It is based on a comprehensive review of technical literature regarding emission performance &  technologies was performed for compressed natural gas engines of model year 2000 and newer.

European Commission has recently proposed a particulate matter (PM) number limit for light-duty diesel vehicles under the Euro 5 and Euro 6 emission standards. To ensure that emissions of utlrafine particles are controlled, the commission has set up this new regulatory approach that tracks emissions in terms of mass and numbers. The proposed PM number emission limit is 5x1011 particles per km. It will be applicable to all light-duty diesel vehicles at the Euro 5 (effective from 2009) and Euro 6 (effective from 2014) stage in Europe.
