Abstract
Agricultural equipment powered using hydrocarbon fuels emit VOCs, CO, soot, particulates, and NOx. However, controlling and reducing these emissions can impose a heavy economic burden on farmers and the agricultural industry. For example, equipment powered by two cycle engines cannot economically employ catalytic converter technology for highway gasoline and diesel engines. Thus, economic control measures are essential. This proposed project will identify an inexpensive catalytic system for removing pollutants from the exhausts of agricultural equipment. Evaluation of the effectiveness of catalysts in both simulated and real engine exhausts will be performed in Phase I.
