Dr. Barry John Cooper developed the systems for the reduction of harmful hydrocarbons from gasoline engine by using the three-way catalysts and the CRT systems to remove carcinogenic carbon particles from diesel engine. He has made substantial contribution to the protection of environmental air in the automobile society. We evaluate highly his such activities and achievements in that they contribute largely to the diffusion of the "eco-technology" concept that Honda Foundation has been consistently advocating since its establishment and we present him hereby the HONDA PRIZE.
