Abstract
THE CLEAN AIR ACT REQUIRES THAT CERTAIN EXHAUST EMISSIONS STANDARDS BE MET BY HEAVY DUTY TRUCKS AND BUSSES (CLASS 8 VEHICLES) POWERED BY DIESEL ENGINES. THE LIMITS SET FOR 1998 CAN ONLY BE MET THRU THE USE OF EXHAUST TREATMENT DEVICES. A NOVEL WOVEN CERAMIC YARN FILTER CAPABLE OF HIGH TEMPERATURE OPERATION HAS BEEN DEVISED WHICH HAS THE POTENTIAL FOR IMPROVED DURABILITY AND FILTRATION PERFORMANCE OVER THE PRESENT BASELINE MONOLITHIC CERAMIC HONEY COMB FILTER.
