For the first time, this book provides a review of the current state of the technology in NOx traps. Covering both the fundamental and applied issues, the book features chapters from people within academia and industry. The book concludes with case studies demonstrating how these technologies are currently put into practice. This book is a fascinating reference for researchers and industrialists working in the treatment of exhaust fumes, as well as people in catalysis and in environmental monitoring.
