China 6 Timeline
September 14, 2020
Gasoline particulate filters (GPF) have become increasingly common since 2014. We discuss the three major drivers of their adoption worldwide as well as our research into the long-term ash buildup in GPF-equipped vehicles.

Following a comprehensive field trial in Shanghai, we conducted detailed analysis on the GPFs upon trial completion, furthering our understanding of GPF ash collection with respect to engine oil ash content and engine oil ash composition.

The global automotive market is about to face one of the toughest challenges in its history: the arrival and implementation of China 6, a new national standard aimed at dramatically cutting emissions from the country’s passenger cars and commercial vehicles.
July 15, 2020
In order to assess the effects of engine oils on gasoline particulate filters (GPFs) in modern turbocharged gasoline direct injection (TGDI) powered cars, we partnered with Corning Environmental Technologies, a leading GPF producer, to conduct a major field trial in Shanghai.
