Recent progress in diesel technology demonstrates the possibility of reducing the particulate matter (PM) emissions level combining the high efficiency of common rail engine with exhaust gas after-treatment devices, such as diesel PM filter. Ceramic foam catalytic filter (CFCF), prepared by coating of ceramic foam (CFUF), results in lower temperature and shorter regeneration time due to the higher specific surface, lower pressure drop and good filtration efficiency with respect to CFUF. © 2007 Springer Science+Business Media, LLC.
