About this book

Within all areas of mobility solutions for economical and environmental friendly technology are under investigation. Fuel consumption, combustion, control and limitation of pollutants in the exhaust gas stream are technological problems, for which guidelines like 98/69/EC determine the processes for reduction of fuel consumption. Apart from technological solutions the consequences of international legislation and their effects on the environmental and climate protection in the area of the mobility are discussed.
