Critical Topics in Exhaust Gas Aftertreatment
The topics most critical to exhaust gas aftertreatment are described in depth: the problems which need to be overcome, and the possible solutions currently under investigation. After treatment is covered as an emissions subject in its own right; and all components of the entire system are included, not just catalysts. Highly technical issues are presented in a way that makes them readily accessible to the non-specialist. It Includes 700 references. Dr Eastwood is a mechanical engineer with approximately fifteen years of experience in research and development. He is a graduate of University College, Swansea, UK and was a Royal Society post-doctoral research fellow at the Institute for Physical and Theoretical Chemistry, Tubingen, Germany. He has worked at the Ford Research Laboratory, Michigan, USA and as an oxygen sensor development engineer for Robert Bosch in South Carolina. He is currently a diesel engine development engineer at Ford's Research and Engineering Centre, Essex, UK.
