Heavy duty diesel (HDD) catalysts turn toxic exhaust emissions from diesel fuelled vehicles into non-toxic substances by using precious metals, such as platinum and palladium. Depending on the type of vehicle, the amount and composition of platinum group metals used can differ. Catalytic converters used in diesel vehicles generally need more platinum than typical petrol-engine cars. It is also more difficult to substitute platinum with other catalytic metals such as palladium and rhodium because they do not work as effectively at the lower burn temperatures at which diesel engines operate. As a result, diesel catalysts require much more sophisticated technology; hence the value of catalyst for diesel engines is higher than that for gasoline/petrol engines.
