Low-temperature combustion (LTC) engines are able toreduce nitrogen oxides (NOx) and particulate matter (PM) emissions, simultaneously. LTC engines suffer from higher amounts of unburned hydrocarbon (uHC) and carbon monoxide (CO) emissions, particularly in low-load operating conditions of the engine. The existence of oxygen molecules in the alcohol fuels not only results in more combustion completeness but also leads to lower CO and uHC emissions.
