Mazda first to introduce single-nanocatalyst technology

Abstract:
Mazda is serious about making some major strides forward using nano technology in its all new Mazda3. It is taking one big step by introducing the world's first commercial application of single-nanocatalyst technology.

Mazda announced that it will be the first to use singlenanocatalyst technology in automobile catalytic converters. This highly durable new catalyst significantly reduces the amount of precious metals used and effectively purifies vehicle exhaust gases.

The idea here is with the single-nanocatalyst, the under-floor catalytic converter in the Mazda3 requires only 0.15g/L of precious metals, which is approximately 70 percent less than the 0.55g/L required in the previous model. Even with the substantial reduction in precious metal usage, the 2010 Mazda3 meets the latest emissions regulations.
