In 2013, just under $26 billion will be spent to remove carbon monoxide, volatile organic compounds and particulate carbon from stationary and mobile sources. Ninety-two percent of the market purchases will be for mobile sources (Table 1). This is the conclusion reached in a report published by the McIlvaine Company. Gasoline-fueled vehicles typically use a three-way catalyst (TWC) to convert three pollutants: carbon monoxide (CO), hydrocarbons (HCs) and oxides of nitrogen (NOx) to carbon dioxide (CO2), water (H2O) and nitrogen (N2). Diesel-fueled vehicles use a diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC), which uses oxygen (O2) in the exhaust gas stream to convert CO to CO2 and HCs to H2O and
