Recent adoption of stringent tailpipe emissions by the United States Environmental Protection Agency has challenged automotive engineers to design advanced catalyst and emission control systems. This interesting publication covers some of the most recent developments in these areas. Contents include: evaluation of a catalytic converter for a 3.73 kW natural gas engine; natural gas converter performance and durability; treatment of natural gas vehicle exhaust; evolution of Pd/Rh TWC catalyst technology; base metal oxide promoters in TWC catalysts; perovskite-Pd three-way catalysts for automotive applications; the effectiveness of PD for converting hydrocarbons in TWC catalysts; electrically heated catalysts; and reformulated gasolines; a feedback A/F control system for low emission vehicles; and hydrocarbon traps for controlling cold start emissions.
