Development work is continuing to investigate different catalyst combinations and is pursuing techniques for reducing the energy consumption. One interesting experiment was performed that applied the plasma system to a urea SCR system while simulating engine cold start. The temperature at the end of the test was only 140°C, and excellent low-temperature performance was achieved. One of the reasons for the high level of interest in plasma catalysis is that the NO2 generated by the plasma as part of the NOx reduction process is also known to be an oxidant for PM.

In general the Fischer-Tropsch and DMM/LSHC fuels exhibited the greatest reduction in particulate matter. At some conditions a factor-of-two reduction in PM was observed relative to the CARB base fuel. Nitrogen oxide emissions were not so dramatically affected. The greatest reduction in NOx seen with the test fuels relative to the base CARB fuel was 30 percent. This is somewhat encouraging; however, the level of reduction needed to meet the Tier 2 standards is closer to an order of magnitude, as opposed to a factor of two.

These were reviewed in the committee’s sixth report (NRC, 2000). Early in the program the USCAR partners decided it would be impractical to design and build a joint concept car, a decision the committee supports. The three concept-car designs that resulted from this decision each made its own significant contribution to program goals. Clearly it is even more impractical for the development of production-prototype vehicles to be pursued in the cooperative part of 17 INTRODUCTION the PNGV program.
