Future Challenges for Catalytic Vehicle Emission Control
|Johnson Matthey catalyst developer Hai-Ying Chen (right) shows results from a reaction mechanism to Reuben Sarkar, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Transportation, DOE Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, at PNNL July 15. Chen was a visiting scientist at PNNL this summer.|
Hai-Ying Chen is a scientific and product development manager at Johnson Matthey, a world leader in catalyst technology. At the company's Emission Control Technologies Division in Wayne, Pennsylvania, he is responsible for developing advanced emission control catalysts that enable automotive vehicles to meet government emission regulations.

Recent research by scientists at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory's Institute for Integrated Catalysis is uncovering some of the forces that thwart biofuel production, and these discoveries can lead to the design of more efficient processes to make renewable fuel. Watch this video and learn more about how they are working to prevent bio-oil from turning into a solid by understanding how uncontrolled side reactions gunk up the process.
Water Leads to Chemical That Gunks up Biofuels Production. A study shows water trips up key chemical reactions that turn plants into fuels, providing scientific principles that can speed up biofuel development. Read more.
