CAER researcher, Mark Crocker, recently received news that a proposal entitled, "Investigation of Aging Mechanisms in Lean NOx Traps," will receive a total of $1,079,314 in funding from the US DOE, including cost share, over the next three years. The project will work to reduce NOx emissions in lean exhaust gases (i.e., gases in which excess oxygen is present) such as those emitted by diesel engines. Improving catalyst durability will be a particular goal of the project. This is important because environmental concerns are resulting in the adoption of stringent new NOx emission standards in the U.S. for diesel vehicles. Staff working on this project will spend a portion of their time at Oak Ridge National Laboratory and Ford Motor Company.
