Summary This chapter has outlined the development of materials and catalysts for the removal of pollutants from car exhausts. Ways of measuring the catalytic processes involved using time resolved methods are described, as also is the application of a novel, atomically resolving, imaging technique to improve the understanding of the processes involved at the surface of the catalytic materials.

Applications and Benefits About 20 parts have been consolidated into one part for a front-end module carrier by using the newly developed injection-molding technology described above. The injection-molded carrier is then 25% cheaper and 18% lighter than using a conventional steel part. Moreover, the same technology and material has also been applied to a door module carrier. 3 kg lighter than using a conventional steel part by integrating plural parts into the carrier plate. , of the module carrier.

Therefore, the promotion of the adoption of aluminum body panels is very important in both automobile and aluminum manufacturing industries.
