Market intelligence has recently predicted a global increase of about 31 million in the number of internal combustion engines (ICE)-powered units by 2030 as technological advancements boost demand. A key to this technological advancement must be the research addressing engine emissions, such as soot, nitrogen oxides (NOx), and unburned hydrocarbons (UHCs). This issue lies in the nature of ICEs, namely that combustion products serve as working fluid and are expelled after a thermodynamic cycle ends. Thus, addressing this requires significant insight into pollutant formation and the destruction processes occurring inside combustion chambers/flames and during after treatments. To this end, Atmosphere is motivated to launch this Special Issue, advancing the knowledge of engine emissions in terms of the formation mechanisms, mitigation methods, approaches to observe and quantify the pollutants, and models to depict and predict emission behaviours.
The scope of this Special Issue is broad, catering for wider interests in engine emissions. Suggested topics include but are not limited to:
- Pollutant formation and destruction/oxidation processes
- Engine emission and performance trade-off
- Biofuel/synthetic fuel effects on engine emissions
- Aftertreatment systems, filtration and catalytic conversion
- Clean combustion/engine operating regimes
- Models of detailed chemistry or engine emission behaviour
- Techniques to observe and measure pollutants
We greatly appreciate your contribution to this Special Issue.

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.
