CHARACTERIZATION OF EXHAUST EMISSIONS FROM PASSENGER CARS EQUIPPED WITH THREE-WAY CATALYST CONTROL SYSTEMS
This paper describes the effort to characterize regulated and unregulated exhaust emissions from four gasoline powered passenger cars equipped with three-way catalyst control systems. In addition to the currently regulated automobile emissions, exhaust emission components measured include: sulfate, aldehydes, ammonia, sulfur dioxide, cyanide, and several other compounds. From the standpoint of toxicity, the most significant emissions from three-way catalyst systems are the currently regulated emissions, followed to a lesser degree by the sulfate emissions.
