LBMA Conference feedback – PGMs and irresponsible reporting on diesel

Day 2 of the LBMA conference in Vienna and one of the most interesting presentations, given perhaps no-one else had anything good to say about pgms and platinum in particular, was one from Peter Duncan of Johnson Matthey.  He described recent media reporting on diesel powered vehicles, particularly in the light of the recent VW emissions testing manipulation scandal, as being both irresponsible and irrelevant.  Irresponsible because most of the problems highlighted in the media are being addressed by the manufacturers and the regulators, and irrelevant as diesel powered vehicles are absolutely essential for the automotive sector to meet greenhouse gas emission standards.
