1. A method of reducing pollutants, including particulates and NOx, in a gas stream, comprising passing said gas stream over an oxidation catalyst under conditions effective to convert a portion of NO in the gas stream to NO2 to produce a gas mixture comprising a mixture of NO and NO2, wherein the gas mixture has an enhanced NO2 content relative to the gas stream entering the oxidation catalyst, removing at least a portion of said particulates in a particulate trap located downstream of the oxidation catalyst, reacting trapped particulate with NO2, adding reductant fluid to the gas stream to form a gas mixture downstream of said trap, and passing the gas mixture over an SCR catalyst under NOx reduction conditions.
