Actually I'm being silly, running a little richer at the primary engine would be more efficient.

For combustion use, remember we're talking like 1 gram per mile, I don't know how much good that would do.
Actually you can make much more NOx if you used a ceramic engine with minimal cooling, the NOx could be stored in the solid metal "tank" then re-emitted when needed.

Too bad the "tank" would cost $10k and even though much more than 1 gram at superheated temperatures likely nothing to crow about either.

Ah well, maybe a technology for pollution control down the road.
