Vehicle emissions, including exhaust and non-exhaust emissions, are a significant source of air pollutants. The exhaust emissions from vehicle engine combustion, such as carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides, particulate matter, and volatile organic compounds, can have harmful effects on human health and the environment. In addition, non-exhaust emissions, such as brake and tire wear particles, can also contribute to air pollution and negative health effects. In particular, with the introduction of battery powered electrical vehicles, the heavy weight of the battery pack adds new challenges to the tire and brake wear and the resulting different particle emission characteristics. Thus, it is essential to understand the underlying mechanisms that contribute to the formation of both exhaust and non-exhaust emissions, which is beneficial to developing effective strategies to mitigate the vehicle-derived emissions.
This Special Issue aims to collect original research papers focused on investigating vehicle-related emissions and the performance of an aftertreatment system using experimental, numerical simulation, and theoretical analysis. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Experimental studies on the characterization and quantification of emissions from various types of vehicles, including light-duty, heavy-duty, and off-road vehicles.
- Evaluation of vehicle aftertreatment system.
- Numerical simulation and modeling of emissions from vehicles, including the development and validation of computational models for predicting vehicle emissions.
- Theoretical analysis and modeling of the factors affecting vehicle-related emissions, such as driving cycles, engine operating conditions, fuel properties, vehicle weight, etc.
- Investigation on the effectiveness of various emission control technologies and strategies, including catalytic converters, diesel particulate filters, SCR, and hybrid/electric vehicles.
- Evaluation of the environmental and health impacts of vehicle emissions, including the contribution of vehicle-derived emissions to air pollution and the associated public health impacts.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Atmosphere is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
