  1. 1. NOx Storage and Reduction Catalysts. Reduction with Hydrogen and the Influence of Water and Carbon Dioxide

    Author : Anna Maria Lindholm; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NSR catalyst; Pt Ba Al; H2O; CO2; Pt Al; NOx reduction; H2; NH3 formation; NOx storage; Lean NOx Trap; N2O formation; kinetic modeling; Pt Si;

    Abstract : Environmental concern has increased over the past several years and resulted in stringent emission legislation on NOx, CO, and hydrocarbon emissions from automobile exhausts. Moreover, the demands to improve the fuel efficiency of engines and to lower the CO2 emissions have increased, and a way to meet this is by using lean burn engines which operate with oxygen excess.

  2. 2. NOx Formation in Rotary Kilns for Iron Ore Pelletization

    Author : Rikard Edland; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; rotary kiln; combustion chemistry; emissions control; Grate-Kiln process; Nitrogen oxides; NOx formation;

    Abstract : The production of iron ore pellets is often performed in the so-called Grate-Kiln process. The aim of the process is to oxidize the magnetite (Fe3O4) to hematite (Fe2O3) and to sinter the pellets so they can be used in steel manufacturing. READ MORE

  3. 3. On Zero-dimensional Modelling of Combustion and NOx Formation in Diesel Engines

    Author : Rolf Egnell; Förbränningsmotorer; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; framdrivningssystem; Motorer; Motors and propulsion systems; NOx Formation; Zero-Dimensional; Modelling; Diesel Engines; Termisk teknik; Thermal engineering; applied thermodynamics; termodynamik;

    Abstract : Diesel engine developers are facing major challenges when meeting future demands on NOx and particulate emissions. The exhausts after treatment systems are rapidly improving and the technologies available in a few years will be capable of cutting emission levels close to the demanded levels. READ MORE

  4. 4. Catalytic formation of ammonia from nitric oxide

    Author : Emma Adams; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NOx reduction; Passive-SCR; In situ characterisation; Environmental heterogeneous catalysis; Ammonia formation;

    Abstract : The emission of nitrogen oxides (NOx) from automobiles results in severe environmental and biological effects. Passive selective catalytic reduction (passive SCR) of NOx with ammonia (NH3) is a proposed method for abatement of NOx emissions in net lean-burn gasoline passenger vehicles. READ MORE

  5. 5. Experimental Studies of NOx Catalysts; Storage, Reduction and Sulphur Deactivation

    Author : Annika Amberntsson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : barium oxide; NOx storage; platinum; rhodium; sulphur poisoning; NOx reduction;

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis work was to investigate how different gaseous compounds, present in an automotive exhaust from lean-tuned combustion, interact with so-called NOx storage catalysts containing Al2O3 as a support, BaO as the NOx storage compound and noble metals to provide oxidation and reduction functions. The investigations included model sample preparations, flow reactor studies with various gas mixtures and spectroscopic experiments (FTIR and XPS). READ MORE
