    in construction and operation to the Hydro—Catalyst Corporation‘s
    "Precombustion Catalyst—California Design".   The Air Resources Board

   Staff has evaluated an applicatign submitted by Hydro—Catalyst Corpora—

    tion for an exemption from the prohibitions of Section 27156 of the

    Vehicle Code for the "Precombution Catalyst—California Design" device
