                      Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code


 1. Introduction
    Tungsten Contact Manufacturing Company, North Bergen, New Jersey, has

    requested permission to market a device in California identified as

    "Tungsten Hydro—Catalyst—California Design".     This device is to be

    manufactured by the Hydro—Catalyst Corporation, Old Bridge, New Jersey,

    and is to be identical in construction and operation to the Hydro—Catalyst

    Corporation‘s "Precombustion Catalyst—California Design".     The Air

    Resources Board Staff has evaluated an application submitted by Hydro—

    Catalyst Corporation for an exemption from the prohibitions of Section

    27156 of the Vehicle Code for the "Precombustion Catalyst—California

    Design" devige and recommended that the exemption be granted.     Executive

    Order D—35 was issued to Hydro—Catalyst Corporation granting the exemp—

    tion for the "Precombustion Catalyst—California Design" device.


I1I. Device Description

    For a description of the construction and operation of the "Tungsten

    Hydro—Catalyst—California Design" device, see the report of the Staff

   California Design" device dated July 23, 1974.


"Tungsten Hydro—Catalyst—California Design" Device      July 23, 1974




III. Conclusions and Recommendations

    The Staff has evaluated the "Precombustion Catalyst—California Design"

     device and found that it has no significant effects on exhaust emissions

     or fuel economy.   It is the Staff opinion that the "Tungsten Hydro—

     Catalyst—California Design" devfce, being identical in construction and

     operation, would also produce the same effects.


     It is recommended that Tungsten Contact Manufacturing Company be granted

    _an exemption from the prohibitions of Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code
