The papers in SP-1073 deal in the main with the two most common forms of aftertreatment technology. The first is the trap oxidizer, which is a system for trapping and filtering the particulate matter from the exhaust gas and periodically removing it by thermal oxidation. The second is the diesel oxidation catalyst. Similar in many ways to the flow through converter in passenger cars, it ozidizes the soluble organic fraction of the of the diesel exhaust as well as gaseous hydrocarbons and carbon monoxide.
Partial contents include: global trends in diesel particulate control - a 1995 update; thermal loading in SiC particulate filters; performance of diesel oxidation catalysts for European bus applications; catalyzed diesel soot filters; the evaluation of oxidation catalysts for diesel trucks; self regenerating catalyzed diesel aftertreatment system; reduction in diesel particulates by bag filter; and development of porous metal for diesel particulate filter.
