What is the function of evaporative emission canister?

What is the function of Evaporative Emission Canister. The evaporative emission (EVAP) canister is a storage device for fuel vapors that are emitted by the fuel tank in hot soak conditions. When the vehicle is at normal operating conditions, the vapors are purged from the canister. The EVAP canister is controlled by the evaporative emission (EVAP) canister purge valve.

How does the evaporative emissions system work?

The evaporative emission (EVAP) control system limits the fuel vapors from escaping into the atmosphere. The EVAP transfers the fuel vapors from the sealed fuel tank to an activated carbon storage device, the EVAP canister. The EVAP canister stores the vapors until the engine is able to use the extra fuel vapor.

Where is the EVAP emission canister?
