Combustion is accompanied by several toxic emissions which are released to atmosphere. The CO2/CO emissions can be limited by the use of other alternative fuels like Hydrogen, CNG etc. NOx emissions can be reduced by introducing HCCI and after-treatment method. The SO2 emissions can be reduced by a desulfurization of fuel before combustion or by a desulfurization of flue gas after combustion. The evidence on emission levels in the country shows that there has been a positive impact to the various steps that have been taken in the past to limit emission of air pollutants. Government of India had constituted an expert committee to suggest Auto fuel vision and policy, 2025 and the committee took the view that, by the earliest possible rollout of BS V grade fuels with compatible engines.
National Conference on I.C Engines and Combustion has been a biennial event under the auspicious of the Combustion Institute- Indian Section. This Conference provides a unique forum for engineers and scientists from academic/ research laboratories/ institutions/industries both from India and abroad to meet and share technical information on new developments in the field of I.C Engines, Combustion and Propulsion.
