The findings are presented of the Panel on Internal Combustion Engines and of the Panel on Alternative Engines. The first Panel evaluated the potential of conventional, spark-ignition internal combustion engines and other internalcombustion engines such as rotary, diesel and stratified-charge engines for meeting strict levels of oxides of nitrogen control in conjunction with specified levels of unburned hydrocarbons and carbonmonoxide. The second Panel assessed the potential of alternative, more advanced automotive engines such as the gas turbine, Stirling and Rankine power plants, for meeting similarly strict levels of emission control. Primary consideration was given to cost in terms of fuel consumption associated with the achievement of various NOX levels by different engine systems. The emission levels considered were those attainable in certification with vehicles tested according to the 1975 Federal Test Procedure. The durability of the engine - and emissions-control systems for 50,000 miles was of importance, with mileage accumulation according to the the certification test procedure.
