Selective Catalytic Reduction with non-vanadia catalyst formulations has been studied for NOX abatement using ammonia as the reductant. Laboratory testing has been carried out on both powder and monolithic catalysts using simulated vehicle exhaust Performance as a function of temperature, NO:NO2 ratio and space velocity has been monitored. Catalysts comprising transition metals supported on a titania-based substrate, in both powder and monolithic form, exhibit high NOX conversion with minimal N2O production over a wide range of conditions, and have shown resistance to hydrothermal ageing, low-level SOX ageing and residual hydrocarbons in the feed stream.
In separate studies, the NOX storage-reduction properties of two representative formulations based on Pt/BaO/Al2O3, and the influence thereon of CO and CO2 are discussed in detail, with particular attention to the uptake and release dynamics of NOX.
