Despite electrical powertrains dominating the headlines, internal combustion engines (ICE ) will continue to be central to automotive platforms for many years to come. Indeed, the ICE platform will represent 50—70% of the vehicles sold in 2030.

Emission control catalysts (ECC) are an essential part of ICE, with emissions regulations and public concerns about energy security and climate change continuously driving technological improvements in auto emission control technologies.

This presentation will review the regulatory, market and technological drivers and challenges for the emission control catalysts in ICE powertrains. Key technical targets and emissions reduction road maps will be discussed, along with an overview of auto catalyst technology and definitions.

This webinar is aimed at anyone working in the automotive and catalysts industries.
