Breakthrough for catalytic converter technology

Automotive World talks to Chris Harris, Chief Executive and Owner of CDTi, about its groundbreaking use of the material Spinel

A tentative air has surrounded the diesel segment following a recent report by the International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT) that exposed dirty diesel engines. These engines are not as clean as they should be, says the report, with many emitting over seven times more nitrogen oxide (NOx) than regulatory requirements allow. Consequently, OEMs and suppliers are looking to their diesel powertrains with a renewed sense of purpose, developing various parts that will hopefully ensure a lower rate of NOx is produced.

However, a new catalytic converter technology developed by Oxnard, California-based Clean Diesel Technologies (CDTi) may provide the breakthrough the segment needs.
