Keywords: carbon dioxide(CO2) unburned hydrocarbons(UHC) | hydrocarbons(HC) | carbon monoxide(CO) | oxides of nitrogen(NOX) | polycyclic aromatic compounds (PAC).

Air pollution due to vehicular exhausts generate pollutants such as carbon dioxide, unburned hydrocarbons(UHC), oxide of nitrogen and lead and other particulate emissions. The level of pollutantsprevalent in the atmosphere today is detrimental to the health of human population particularly children and those with affected with chronic diseases. Hence emission control devices have been developed by several researchers for simultaneous control of hydrocarbons (HC), carbon monoxide(CO), oxides of nitrogen(NOX) and particulate in automobile engine exhaust. In the current study, we have designed acyclonic separator by optimizing conditions like collection efficiency, low pressure drop across the cyclone and vortex finder size and tested its efficacy in removing the particulate matter. Cyclone separator was found to be cheap and cost-effective strategy to minimize air and sound pollution.
