The report discusses the evaluation of two noble metal catalysts for methanol-fueled vehicles to reduce mobile source emissions. The catalysts were first tested as three-way converters, to oxidize unburned fuel, aldehydes, and carbon monoxide, as well as to reduce oxides of nitrogen emissions. An air pump, which supplied air to the exhaust ahead of the catalyst but downstream of the exhaust oxygen sensor, was then used to evaluate the catalysts in a simulated oxidation mode. Also included are the test vehicle descriptions, the test facilities and analytical methods used, and specifications for each individual test vehicle.
