Ceramic Substrates for Heavy Commercial Vehicles

Diesel exhaust emission control has become a key subject to ensure sustainable economical growth consistent with the environment, since diesel usage continues to increase with economic growth in the world. Diesel engines are important power sources, because of superior fuel economy and durability which are especially important for industrial applications. In respect of air pollution, diesel engines emit high amounts of particulates and NOx while emitting low amounts of HC and CO compared with gasoline engines. Diesel particulates are a probable human carcinogen, and NOx causes photochemical smog and acid rain.

In the field of diesel heavy commcercial vehicles, Large Size HONEYCERAM® (LSH, diameter up to 12”) are used in oxidation catalyst and also selective catalyst reduction (SCR) technologies. This Large Size HONEYCERAM® can also be used in combination with a diesel particulate filter (DPF).
