Title: Formaldehyde emission control technology for methanol-fueled vehicles.

Principal Investigator / Author(s): Newkirk, Matthew S

Contractor: Southwest Research Institute

Contract Number: A732-148


Research Program Area: Emissions Monitoring & Control

Topic Areas: Mobile Sources & Fuels, Toxic Air Contaminants


Abstract:

To identify and to demonstrate durable emission control systems capable of reducing formaldehyde emissions from methanol-fueled vehicles to levels comparable to those from gasoline-fueled vehicles while not adversely affecting other criteria pollutant levels.

These findings will be used to demonstrate that formaldehyde emissions from methanol-fueled vehicles can be reduced to about the same level as those for gasoline-fueled vehicles; thus use of methanol has the potential for achieving substantial air quality benefits.
