What is needed for catalyst ageing?

The traditional methods use in some form, liquid fuel. This in itself is undesirable as the combustion of liquid fuel to generate the thermal energy required for catalyst deactivation is inefficient. Maybe achieving 35% efficiency at best. Of course, cutting edge internal combustion engines are pushing the levels of efficiency up, but only marginally, and more importantly these engines would never be used to simply ‘Age’ catalysts.

Does repeatability exist in aftertreatment development?

As a noun it is defined as - the lack of variation between multiple measurements taken under the same control conditions. Let’s give it some context first.

The mobility industry is pretty resilient, it survived the 2008 economic downturn and it has survived ‘Dieselgate’, just like it will survive the 2021 CO2 fleet reduction and whatever comes post Euro 6. To overcome future challenges whether external or internal, advanced testing, efficiency gains and certainty are required through every single component of the vehicle development process. Aftertreatment development and catalyst durability testing is no different.
