1. A NOx control system to selectively reduce NOx present in an exhaust, the NOx control system comprising:
a lean NOx catalyst including:
a substrate; and
a hydrocarbon selective catalytic reduction (HC-SCR) catalyst disposed on the substrate, wherein the HC-SCR catalyst catalyzes a reduction of NOx with an alcohol; and
an alcohol generator to generate the alcohol;
wherein the alcohol generator is a superacid catalyst disposed on the substrate and the superacid catalyst catalyzes a reaction to convert an exhaust constituent into the alcohol.
