DescriptionAccording to the World Health Organization (WHO) database of outdoor air pollution in 565 cities represented by the annual mean concentration of fine particulate matters PM2.5, i.e. particles smaller than 2.5 microns, the HK urban area ranked in the bottom eight. The pollutants mainly come from diesel heavy vehicles such as trucks and buses (source: Hong Kong Economic Times date: November 21, 2011). The aim of this project is to produce an ideal catalyst and associated coating technology suitable for automobile catalytic converters that will effectively reduce the amount of released pollutants from these vehicles at a low cost.
