A complete combustion of diesel will leave only CO2, but the lack of sufficient oxygen in the combustion cylinder produces a number of other substances:
- Carbon Monoxides (CO) – invisible gas that prevents oxygen from being absorbed in the blood.
- Hydro Carbons (HC) – reduces the amount of oxygen available in the breathable air.
- Nitrogen Oxides (NOX) – increases the acidity of the environment.
- Particulate Matter (PM) – causes lung-diseases and reduced breathing capacity.
The of emissions that a vehicle produces is governed by different emission legislations in most developed countries all over the world. One of the leading legislations is the EURO-standards that apply to every vehicle produced and sold within the European Union. A vehicles EURO-classification reveals the maximum emission values that the vehicle is permitted to produce.
All of the above mentioned substances can be removed or heavily reduced by Engine optimization, but in order to comply with the most recent standards, installation of additional emission technology is required.
