Ceramic Catalytic Converters for Motorcycles and Scooters 962472

The feasibility of using ceramic catalytic converters to reduce HC and CO emissions from 2-stroke motorcycles and scooters was investigated by performing mass emission tests on the Indian Driving Cycle. It was found that it is possible to reduce emissions significantly by installing ceramic catalytic converters at a proper location in the exhaust pipe. A power loss requirement of <5% was also met with ceramic converters. Laboratory tests on mat durability indicated that the ceramic catalytic converter package can offer excellent mechanical durability under Indian driving conditions.
