High Performance Advanced Three-way Catalysts For The Proposed 2004 And 2008 Mercosur Emissions Standards 2000-01-3303
Recently, significantly more demanding emissions standards for the Mercosur region were proposed, and the intention is that these will be introduced in 2004 and 2008. This paper describes the development of new high performance three-way catalyst formulations for conventional gasoline/gasohol fueled engines that enables them to meet these stringent standards without increasing the content of platinum group metals above the levels currently employed. The performance benefits of these advanced platinum and palladium-based catalysts are demonstrated on both engine bench and vehicles.
