Nissan halves uses of pgms in catalyst - 27th July 2007

Abstract:
Nissan has developed a platinum catalyst for use in gasoline-fuelled cars, which uses half the precious metals of existing technology, offering considerable cost savings.

The Japanese marque has been able to cut the use of platinum group metals (pgms) through employing nanotechnology in the manufacture of the catalyst, which the researchers have found prevents particles of fine metal from clustering.
