The papers in this book are mainly concerned with the two most common forms of diesel 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. This process is commonly known as regeneration. The second is the diesel oxidationc atalyst. Similar in many ways to the flow through converter in passenger cars, it oxidizes the soluble organic fraction of the diesel exhaust as well gaseous hydrocarbons and carbon monoxide. The system is being used in production volumes in heavy duty trucks in the United States beginning in 1994. Several papers in this volume deal with the development experience of this converter. There are also papers describing improved materials and regeneration technology of trap systems.
