Climate change is undoubtedly one of the greatest concerns of our generation. Global warming is a consequence of harmful greenhouse gases, such as carbon dioxide (CO2) and oxides of nitrogen (NOx) being emitted into our fragile environment. These two gases are prominent in exhaust gases from gasoline fuelled vehicles. Controlled Auto-Ignition Combustion (CAI) is a new technology that is close to being used in production engines. At low engine speeds and loads, CAI produces lower emissions of CO2  and NOx than a typical Spark Ignition (SI) engine. It also has the benefit of reduced fuel consumption.
