  . Introduction

    Supreme Automotive Manufacturing Company, Brooklyn, Hew York, has

    requested permission to market a device in California identified as

    "Energy Plus 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 Resourceé Board Staff has evaluated an application

    submitted by Hydro—Catalyst Corporation for an exemptionlfrom the

    prohibitions of Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code for the "Precombus—

    tion Catalyst—California Design" device and recommended that the

    exemption be granted.    Executive Order D—35 was issued to Hydro—Catalyst

   Corporation granting the exemption for the "Precombustion éata1yst-

    California Design" device.


HI. Device Description

   For a description of the construction and operation of the "Energy Plus

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

   tion of Hydro—Catalyst Corporations‘ "Precombustion Catalyst—California

   Design" device dated July 23, 1974.


"Energy Plus 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 "Energy Plus Catalyst—

    California Design" device, being identical in construction and operation,

    would also produce the same effects.

     It is recommended that Supreme Automotive Manufacturing Company be granted

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

    for its "Energy Plus Catalyst—California Design" device for use on 1974

    and olider model—year vehicles.
