In recent years, research on emissions measurement and control technology has gained renewed and intense interest in the U.S. due to aggressive regulations proposed by the Federal Government and the state of California. Europe has also experienced increased activity in emissions research due to EEC-wide legislation that confirms the requirement for stringent automotive emission control. This publication details what is being done to meet the challenges automakers worldwide are facing. Partial contents include: sampling conditions for measurement of formaldehyde from methanol-fueled vehicle; fast multicomponent exhaust gas analyzer for motor development workplaces; the performance of Pd, Pt, and Pd-Pt catalysts in lean exhaust; a comparative study of gasoline and diesel passenger car emissions under similar conditions of use; and development of a high performance catalytic converter for a turbocharged gasoline engine using thin wall ceramic technology.
