Optimization of an SCR Catalyst System to Meet EUIV Heavy Duty Diesel Legislation 2008-01-1542

This paper describes the development and characterization of a selective catalytic reduction (SCR) catalyst system for a typical EUIV heavy-duty diesel (HDD) engine. The performance of the SCR catalyst and the impact of catalyst volume are described. The effect of using an ammonia slip catalyst behind the SCR catalyst is investigated, before examples of the use of computer modelling to refine the optimum volume and urea injection strategy are given. Finally, the durability of the SCR catalyst is described.
Taken as a whole, the results demonstrate how a combination of practical experiments and computer modelling can be used to refine the system and provide a cost-effective exhaust aftertreatment (EA) solution.
