Implementation of Recommendations

China -- Rare-Earth Oxide Catalysts Program

  • Objective

    • Develop a low cost and robust catalytic converter for vehicles which utilizes China’s abundant rare earth resources and technologies

  • Agreement

    • Ford and Chinese Government (Sep. 1996)

    • Cooperative R/D partnership

    • Patents and licensing


China -- Rare-Earth Oxide Catalysts Program

  • Scope

  • Fundamental Catalyst Research Program

  • Ceramic Substrate Development Program

  • Catalyst Performance Evaluation and Testing Program

  • In-use Vehicle Retrofit


China -- Rare-Earth Oxide Catalysts Program

  • Results

  • REO catalyst developed by Ford and China applied to new vehicles with EFI can meet ECE 83.01

  • REO catalyst is effectively used to retrofit in-use vehicles to reduce automotive emissions by 50%, as demonstrated by fleet study in Kunming City

  • REO catalyst effectively reduce cost emission control system

  • REO catalyst has potential to be applied to diesel engine vehicles
