Twenty-five years of diesel particulate filter (DPF) developments have shown that ceramic materials are well-suited candidates to fulfill the harsh requirements of exhaust after treatment. The introduction of DPF in passenger cars in Europe in 2000 was a real breakthrough from both a scientific and a com. point of view. Different systems and filter materials can be used as DPF; however, at the moment silicon carbide wall flow filters seem to be at advantage. There is a continual demand for cost-effective and reliable materials and systems forced by increasing legal emission stds. [on SciFinder (R)]
