The report discusses the results of a test program performed at EPA's National Vehicle and Fuel Emissions Laboratory (NVFEL) to evaluate two different methanol vehicle catalyst systems. The catalysts were tested on a lean burn and a stoichiometric port injected engine equipped vehicle using M100 (neat methanol) fuel. The exhaust emission levels, particularly formaldehyde emissions, were significantly reduced by both catalysts. Air injection strategies were implemented to obtain very low cold start emissions of unburned fuel and formaldehyde.
