A cure for the Dieseler's NOxs

Even if you burn veggie, you can't get away from the NOxs.

Maybe.

Check this out: http://www.chemweb.com/alchem/articles/1066207373279.html

You'll have to take three or four minutes to register to read it, but the site has a lot of cool stuff on it.

Quote:
In trials with the bus, adding the plasmatron and an adsorption catalyst exhaust-treatment system resulted in removal of up to 90% of NOx emissions, says Daniel Cohn of MIT's Plasma Science and Fusion Center.

The plasmatron reformer also cut the amount of fuel consumed by the catalytic converter: "The adsorption catalyst system under consideration requires additional fuel," he says, "but the plasmatron reduced its fuel consumption by a factor of two." Cohn noted that the plasmatron reformer also allowed the NOx absorption catalyst to be effective at the low exhaust temperatures characteristic of urban use.

ChemWeb IS worth registering for.

There's a lot of commercial sites out there that require an insane amount of "registration" .... like a couple of parts/equipment sites that I've gone to and realized that I just can't happily fill out all their &^%%$ forms in order to save $10 on a MityVac.

However, with sites like this and MedLine and other dense information sites, I figure their "registration" is kinda like getting a library card. Before the Internet became ubiquotous, if you wanted to do any kind of research, you had to go to a library. Specialized stuff often was only available in certain academic ones or at the library of a trade association. There were different standards and rules for use of these non-public libraries; but, you got some kind of an ID card for all of them.

This is just like that. I have a part of a page in my agenda book that is devoted just to logins and I have way fewer library cards in my wallet than I used to. This forum has a login. And a password. Big deal.

Anyhow, if you're a member of ChemWeb, they send you a weekly newsletter to your e-mail: The Alchemist. So, you may not ever have to sign in again to get the cool info.

For those who weren't put off by the registration, whaddaya think? I'd have posted more of the article, but wasn't so sure of the copyright laws on quoting stuff.
