Information and data reported individually by 20 different automobile manufacturers and other organizations involved in the development of emission control technology is summarized and evaluated. The state of the art in automobile emission control technology is described. Most of the data is characteristic of the state of the art at/or before December 1972. This report covers the emission control systems planned for use in model year 1975 and 1976, results of durability testing, the significant technical problem areas, and the development status of the industry with respect to model years 1975 and 1976. Conclusions are drawn about the ability of manufacturers to certify vehicles in model years 1975 and 1976.
