DEVELOPMENT ON EXHAUST EMISSIONS AND FUEL ECONOMY OF THE ROTARY ENGINE AT TOYO KOGYO

Better fuel economy and lowered HC and NOx emissions were attained by making several modifications to the rotary engine. These included improvement of both design and materials in the apex and corner seals, stratification of the leaner fuel-air mixture and upgrading of the thermal reactor and catalytic converter. The contribution of each modification to design objectives is reviewed.
