Methods for Monitoring and Diagnosing the Efficiency of by Marios Sideris

By Marios Sideris

The dramatic evolution of catalytic converters within the final thirty years used to be as a result a necessity world wide to lessen toxins created by way of the exhaust gases of inner combustion engines. Environmental matters have led American, eastern and ecu Union (EU) laws to pose constantly stricter emission limits for petrol engines within the final a long time.
