Novel exhaust catalyst converter for mobile non-road machinery

Objective

Diesel engines are widely used for on-road (trucks, vans) and non-road applications (agricultural tractors, compressors, off-road trucks, forklift trucks, etc.). Despite a number of advantages diesel engines have a detrimental environmental downside: relatively high NO, and particulate matter (soot) emissions, which prompted stringent vehicle emissions regulation, in Europe as well as in Japan and the USA. Driven by large volumes, current technologies are mainly developed for on-road applications.

Indeed, for certain non-road applications they might be technically not feasible or very expensive to use, and novel technologies are required to ensure that these diesel non-road mobile machinery are able to comply to environmental legislation. Without exception, the currently available catalyst converters make use of precious (expensive) metals like Pt,Pd and Rh.
