Vehicular pollution is very ingrained into our present day lifestyles. By extension, so are catalytic converters. Although their approach is to lower pollution at the local levels, they do not produce any global side effects i.e. they do not escalate atmospheric CO2 levels which contribute to Global Warming.
Different types of electric vehicles have zero or minimal tailpipe pollutants. But it will be a while before sufficient charging infrastructure is available to thrust electrical vehicles in the mainstream of transportation. Until then, catalytic converters will continue to be integrated into the fabric of our existence. Technological advances will further boost their utility.
of automation is here.
