Why are Implementation of Strict Vehicle Emission Norms Catalyzing Demand for Automotive Ceramics?

As greenhouse gas emission levels increase at an alarming rate, governments worldwide are attempting to rein in these harmful emissions, majority of which are generated from excessive automotive usage. In an effort reduce greenhouse gases, emission control regulations are becoming stringent, prompting vehicle manufacturers to introduce fuel-efficient automobiles.

For instance, the European Union is actively endorsing the Euro 6 emission standard since 2014. For a diesel car to be Euro 6 compliant, it should not emit more than 80 mg/km of NO­x gases, while a petrol car can emit no more than 60 mg/km. From 2025, the Euro 7 standards would be applicable. Such tough legislations are compelling auto manufacturers to incorporate automotive ceramics and enhance vehicular performance.
