The Ford Motor Company has presented the Federal Government with a new weapon to fight air pollution. It's a scientific measuring device that detects two key ingredients in smog, the oxides of nitrogen and ozone. The device, developed by Ford researchers, represents a major advance in smog chemistry research. Ford's Erik Daby was among those who developed the device from the laboratory to the finished instrument given to the National Air Pollution Control Administration.
A federal official said the new instrument will remove previous doubts concerning the reliability of nitric oxide measurements in the atmosphere and will facilitate the development of auto exhaust emission controls by allowing more reliable measurement of oxides of nitrogen.
