Start Catalyst Systems Employing Heated Catalyst Technology for Control of Emissions from Methanol-Fueled Vehicles 930382

EPA published the first results from evaluations of electrically heated catalyst (EHC) technology for light-duty automotive applications. Since then, a number of automakers, suppliers, and government agencies have published results from their heated catalyst development and evaluation programs. EPA has evaluated a number of start catalyst systems incorporating an EHC start catalyst followed by a larger, conventional main catalyst. These systems have proven very effective at reducing cold start related emissions from methanol vehicles at low mileage. This paper compares the results from several EHC + main catalyst evaluations conducted by EPA.
