Abstract : The paper is concerned with the air pollution problem as it relates to the Otto-cycle engine and the vehicles powered by this type engine. Specifically, this paper deals with the control of the three major air pollutants emitted by the automobile. It discusses the automobile as a source of pollution and the efforts that have been and are being made to control the emission of pollutants. The author proposes a new exhaust control system that is based on viewing the pollution problem as a wasted resource problem and discusses the possible difficulties that the proposed control system will encounter.
