Diesel soot oxidation and CO emission control during mild DPF Regeneration 2007-24-0096

Four perovskite catalysts LaBO3 (B = Cr, Mn, Fe, Ni), also supporting 2% in weight of gold, were prepared via the so-called “Solution Combustion Synthesis (SCS)” method, and characterized by means of XRD, BET, FESEM-EDS, TEM, O2-TPD and CO-TPR analyses. The performance of these catalysts towards the simultaneous oxidation of soot and CO was evaluated. The 2 wt.% Au-LaNiO3 showed the best performance with a peak carbon combustion temperature of 431 °C and the half conversion of CO reached at 156 °C. The same nanostructured catalyst, deposited by in situ SCS directly over a SiC filter and tested on real diesel exhaust gases, fully confirmed the encouraging results obtained on the powder catalyst.
