Abstract:
Automotive Manufacturers' Growing Clean-Diesel Vehicle Pipeline Fuels

Heightened Interest in More Efficient and Cost-Effective Catalyst Materials

Nanostellar Scientist to Present Advanced Oxidation Catalysts at Leading Conference on Diesel Emissions Research

Redwood City, CA | Posted on August 13th, 2007

Topic: Media, industry analysts and others are invited to hear Kyle Fujdala, Ph.D., Direct of Product Research and Development for Nanostellar, address the topic "Rational Catalyst Design Applied to Development of Advanced Oxidation Catalysts for Diesel Emissions Control," at the 13th Diesel Engine-Efficiency and Emissions Research (DEER) Conference in Detroit. Dr. Fujdala will describe the use of a Rational Catalyst Design process that tightly integrates both experimental and computational components to promote the efficient development of improved oxidation catalysts for treating diesel emissions. Given the challenges presented by advanced diesel combustion systems with higher carbon monoxide and hydrocarbon emissions and lower exhaust temperatures, Dr. Fujdala will explain the need for a new approach in the industry and present a case study validating the rational design methodology. When and Where: The DEER Conference takes place August 13-16, 2007, at the Marriott Renaissance Center Hotel in Detroit. Dr. Fujdala will address attendees on August 15, 2007 at 10:50 AM ET. Conference Details: For more than a decade, the DEER Conference has been the U.S. Department of Energy's primary mechanism for the public exchange of state-of-the-art clean diesel research and development (R&D). DEER fosters the exchange of information and best practices from new and ongoing diesel R&D. Biography of Kyle Fujdala, Nanostellar
