Research Results on Processes and Catalyst Materials for Lean NOx Conversion 962041

In a joint research project between industrial companies and a number of research institutes, nitrogen oxide conversion in oxygen containing exhaust gas has been investigated according to the following procedure
  • Basic investigations of elementary steps of the chemical reaction
  • Production and prescreening of different catalytic material on laboratory scale
  • Application oriented screening of industrial catalyst material
  • Catalyst testing on a lean bum gasoline engine, passenger car diesel engines (swirl chamber and DI) and on a DI truck engine
Although a number of solid body structures show nitrogen oxide reduction by hydrocarbons, only noble metal containing catalysts and transition metal exchanged zeolites gave catalytic efficiencies of industrial relevance. A maximum of 25 % NOx reduction was found in the European driving cycle for passenger cars, about 40 % for truck engines in the respective European test.
