The exhaust gases emitted by diesel engines are frequently both a health hazard and a nuisance to the public. These emissions can be minimised by careful engine design but catalytic combustion provides a more effective method of purification. THT catalysts incorporating platinum have given excellent results in test units. They are suitable for diesel-engined road vehicles and for diesels working in enclosed conditions.
