Summary

Removal of trace sulfur compounds from fuels is important in a wide variety of applications such as transportation and stationary fuel processors for fuel cells, diesel engines, and gasoline direct injection engine NOX traps. Several materials have been found useful for sulfur removal such as nickel metal on oxidic supports, zinc-oxide adsorbents, molecular sieves, and metal-sulfur sorbents. This paper discusses structured monolith development and processing of commercially available sulfur trap materials, including methods to make various sizes of monolith substrates with honeycomb cell geometry. Challenges to develop crack-free large samples from high surface area materials will also be discussed. the physical properties of monolithic parts are compared with that of pellets.
