Aftertreatment of Diesel Vehicle Emissions Using Compact Plasmatron Fuel Converter-Catalyst Systems

Plasma Fuel Converters convert carbon fuel to rich hydrogen gas by electrifying fuel in an engine. This increases the efficient burning of the fuel, and reduces the resulting pollutants. This document summarizes the benefits plasma converters can have for lower diesel fuel emissions, especially if combined with catalysts that absorb particulate pollutants and nitrogen oxides.
