  3. Abstract:
  4. Using natural gas combined with diesel fuel in diesel engines provides a considerable contribution to modern industrial societies in order to control air pollution and, also, generalize and facilitate the use of public vehicles. In spite of the attractive features of this idea, including reduction of NO(X) and particulates, there is an important burden imposed upon the system at low to intermediate torques, namely high concentration of CO and unburned total hydrocarbons (THC), mostly composed of methane. In this work, based upon the oxidation of CO and unburned HCs and through experimental results, application of a monolithic oxidizing bifunctional catalytic converter as a novel complementary for the dual fuel (natural gas/diesel) engine is introduced. This novel method called switching is used to keep high temperatures across the converter and has the advantage of converting the hydrocarbons
