Diesel-engined vehicles are highly reliable and use fuel more economically than spark ignition engines, therefore they are being more widely adopted. However, in addition to relatively small quantities of gaseous pollutants, diesel exhaust emissions characteristically contain much higher concentrations of particulate materials. Continuing their clean air policy, the Environmental Protection Agency in the United States of America has imposed limits on the amount of particulates that will be tolerated in diesel exhaust emissions from 1982 model year vehicles to 0.6 grams per mile, with an even lower limit of 0.2 grams per mile proposed for the 1985 model year. The generation of particulates is complex and involves many parameters; this paper discusses the development of an after-treatment system employing platinum group metals that has now successfully controlled particulate emissions during a 50,000 mile durability trial.
