ARB Hopes to Turn Ozone Into Oxygen

Associated Press

A specially coated car radiator designed to turn ground-level ozone--a major smog component--into breathable oxygen is getting a two-month test in California.

For the test, two Ford Contours and a Ford Windstar equipped with the special Engelhard Corp. pollution-control system will be driven 10 hours a day, six days a week on freeways in Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside and San Bernardino counties.

The Engelhard PremAir system should destroy about 90% of the ozone that passes through a vehicle's radiator.
