Catalytic converters are horrible inefficient devices which were
successfully marketed to governments as "the right way to go"
Other forms of emissions control i.e lean burn engines could have
provided a much better solution IMHO. Unfortunately what's good for
the big oil companies tends to influence governments more than what's
good for the masses, so we have catalysts....
Just my 2p
