A chemical engineer from the University of Houston is leading a $2.1-million project to find new catalytic materials that work at lower exhaust temperatures, allowing automakers to build vehicles that operate more efficiently while retaining the ability to clean emissions before they leave the tailpipe. Engineers from Fiat-Chrysler Automobiles Inc. Catalytic converters clean vehicle exhaust into nitrogen, water and carbon dioxide.
