How niobium technology can increase the efficiency of catalytic converters

The primary purpose of this document is to highlight an area of cutting-edge research where niobium technology has the potential to increase the efficiency of catalytic converters in gasoline vehicles.

Catalytic converters were first introduced by the automotive industry in the 1970’s to address deteriorating air quality and their development has been evolving ever since. This area of technology is becoming increasingly important as the number of vehicles on the road continues to grow on a global scale. Furthermore, governments are implementing strict legislation relating to emission targets which are driving technology developments in the automotive sector.
