Explore history of Clean Air Act at SC Wednesday @ Sheridan College
Dec 7 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

SHERIDAN — The Sheridan College Museum of Discovery will host a lecture on “Clean Air — Then and Now: The Role of Catalysts and Computers” on Wednesday at 7 p.m.

The event is free and open to the public.

The lecture will take a retrospective look at the reasons for the enactment of the 1970 Clean Air Act, which led to the use of catalytic converters as standard equipment on all American cars produced since 1974.

Today, exhaust emissions from our cars are 98 percent lower than they were in the early 1970s. Which would not have been possible without the co-development of catalyst and computer science. The lecture will include examples of how the automotive industry could match scientific advances in chemistry and electronics to accomplish what was thought impossible 40 years ago. Robert McDowell will present the lecture.

McDowell graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science degree from Villanova University while working in the research and development group of Johnson Matthey, the largest automotive catalyst company. He was part of the team that brought the first commercial three-way catalyst from concept into production and has manufactured emission control catalyst on four continents. He currently advises a diverse set of clients working in the R&D and prototyping areas, including lithium ion batteries, biofuels, precious metal recycling and emission control catalysts.
