                                   EXECUTIVE ORDER D—393—4

                                   Relating to Exemptions under
                             Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code

                                        Johnson Matthey
                                       CRT Particulate Filter

Pursuant to the authority vested in the Air Resources Board (ARB) by Section 27156 of
the Vehicle Code; and

Pursuant to the authority vested in the undersigned by Sections 39515 and 39516 of the
Health and Safety Code and Executive Order G—45—9;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That installation of the Continuously Regenerating
Technology (CRT) Particulate Filter, manufactured by Johnson Matthey of 380 Lapp
Road, Malvern, Pennsylvania 19355, has been found not to reduce the effectiveness of
the applicable vehicle pollution control system, and therefore, the CRT Particulate Filter
is exempt from the prohibitions in section 27156 of the Vehicle Code for installation on
heavy—duty on—road vehicles equipped with the following 4—stroke diesel engines:




                               .                  3208, 3116, 3126, 3306, 3406,

CRT Particulate Filters exempted under this Executive Order are identified in
Attachment A. This exemption is only valid provided the engines meet the following
operating conditions: (1) the engine exhaust temperature is greater than or equal to
275 degrees Celsius for 40 to 50 percent of the typical duty cycle, (2) the NOx to PM
ratio is at least 8, and (3) the engine is operated using diesel fuel with a maximum sulfur
content of 50 parts per million by weight.


                                                  2.


This exemption is based on emission tests conducted by Johnson Matthey with the CRT
Particulate Filter. Johnson Matthey submitted the following results:



       No.     MY        — Make .     ‘Model           THC ~|. CO_.|   NOx    PM >

       2      1995      Cummins         M11            —91     —89     —5     —95

       3      1998        pDC         Series 60         —95    —94     2      —87
       a      1999        poc         Series 50        —100    72      —6     90

The emission data showed that the CRT Particulate Filter does not adversely affect the
exhaust emissions of the test engines. The same emission impact is expected when
the CRT Particulate Filter is installed on heavy—duty vehicles equipped with any of the
engines listed above.

This Executive Order is valid provided that installation instructions for the CRT
Particulate Filter do not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications different from
those of the vehicle manufacturer.

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the CRT Particulate Filter, as
exempt by the ARB, which adversely affect the performance of the vehicle‘s pollution
control system, shall invalidate this Executive Order.

Marketing of the CRT Particulate Filter using identification other than that shown in this
Executive Order or for an application other than that listed in this Executive Order shall
be prohibited unless prior approval is obtained from the ARB.

This Executive Order shall not apply to any CRT Particulate Filter advertised, offered for
sale, sold with, or installed on a motor vehicle prior to or concurrent with transfer to an
ultimate purchaser.

This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the use of the
CRT Particulate Filter may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the
vehicle manufacturer.

No claim of any kind, such as "Approved by the Air Resources Board," may be made
with respect to the action taken herein in any advertising or other oral or written
communication.

In addition to the foregoing, the ARB reserves the right in the future to review this
Executive Order and the exemption provided herein to assure that the exempted add—on

or modified part continues to meet the standards and procedures of California Code of
Regulations, Title 13, Section 2222, et seq.

THIS EXECUTIVE ORDER DOES NOT CONSTITUTE A CERTIFICATION,
ACCREDITATION, APPROVAL, OR ANY OTHER TYPE OF ENDORSEMENT BY THE
AIR RESOURCES BOARD OF ANY CLAIMS OF THE APPLICANT CONCERNING
ANTI—POLLUTION BENEFITS OR ANY ALLEGED BENEFITS OF JOHNSON
MATTHEY‘S CRT PARTICULATE FILTER.

Violation of any of the above conditions shall be grounds for revocation of this Executive
Order. The Executive Order may be revoked only after a ten—day written notice of
intention to revoke the Executive Order, in which period the holder of the Executive
Order may request in writing a hearing to contest the proposed revocation. If a hearing
is requested, it shall be held within ten days of receipt of the request, and the Executive
Order may not be revoked until a determination is made after a hearing that grounds for
revocation exist.

Executed at El Monte, California, this   Z¢e      day of February 2002.

exhaust inlet/outlet configuration, catalyst substrate, and filter element for the
engine horsepower ranges. The catalyst and filter substrate volume/density
combinations specified above are the minimum catalyst and filter sizes Johnson
Matthey will use on a given engine. Johnson Matthey may use a larger catalyst
and/or filter for a given engine/vehicle combination.
