Default Help Required: Diesel Engine

Posting this on behalf of my brother who is Final Year Mechanical Engineering and is workin on a diesel engine as a part of his final year project.
Gurus, please help.
---------------------------
specifications:
12 horse power single cylinder water cooled diesel engine with 7 kv alternator
cylinder bore 102 mm

situation:
we want to connect a catalytic converter to the exhaust of the engine

doubts:
1. difference between petrol and diesel catalytic converter

2. since a diesel engine produces more pollution and ash than a petrol engine, CAN WE USE A PETROL CATALYTIC CONVERTOR WITH A DIESEL ENGINE GENERATOR? is the meshed circular plates (which act as filter) fine enough to stop diesel combustion residues?

3. where can we find a second hand diesel catalytic converter? if in mayapuri can u pls tell specifically which shop because we have searched that market?


Thanks
