The significance of automotive emission control was appreciated even before the Volkswagen scandal tore into the automotive sector. The escalating levels of air pollution have alarmed concerned parties and different countries and companies have been tackling this issue in varied ways. In countries such as the U.S., where the personal automobile is probably the single greatest polluter, the focus is on ensuring personal vehicles are equipped with automotive emission control systems. In other countries like India, emissions from light-to heavy-duty personal as well as public transportcall for more stringent vehicle emission standards.
