  1. 1. Multiscale methods for the fundamental understanding of diesel soot mitigation

    Author : Carl Justin Kamp; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Nanofabrication; Catalyst; Soot; Aftertreatment; Carbon; Particulate Matter; Oxidation; Ash; Diesel Particulate Filter;

    Abstract : Current regulations for diesel exhaust emissions cannot be met by engine improvements alone, and for this reason the diesel particulate filter (DPF) is a widely used aftertreatment component for the control of diesel particulate matter (PM). The DPF functions by trapping PM and destroying it by oxidation. READ MORE

  2. 2. Studies of a Heavy-Duty Diesel Aftertreatment System Based on the NOX Storage and Reduction Technology

    Author : Klaus Papadakis; Institutionen för kemiteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; fuel penalty; injection parameters; DoE; design of experiments; exhaust; diesel engine; NO oxidation; simulation; modelling; oxidation catalyst; NOX trap; NOX storage and reduction; NSR; Kemiteknik och kemisk teknologi; Chemical technology and engineering; dosing strategy; system optimisation;

    Abstract : The legislative limits for NOX emissions in the exhaust gas from heavy-duty diesel engines will be decreased in the European Union from today 3.5 g/kWh (Euro IV) to 2.0 g/kWh in 2008 (Euro V). In the USA and Japan a similar trend can be seen. READ MORE

  3. 3. Deactivation of diesel oxidation catalysts

    Author : Jonas Andersson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Accelerated aging: Diesel exhaust: Oxidation catalyst: Sulfur deactivation: Phosphorous poisoning: CO oxidation: Pt dispersion: Al2O3: Sintering: TEM: XPS;

    Abstract : To meet the demand for heavy- and light-duty diesel vehicles on expansive markets while complying with current and future emission standards, it is necessary to reinsure the long-livety of the applied exhaust aftertreatment technology. Loss of catalytic performance may be associated with environmental as well as economical consequences. READ MORE

  4. 4. Effects of trace elements in biodiesel on the performance of diesel oxidation catalysts in heavy-duty vehicles

    Author : Jonas Granestrand; Lars Pettersson; Todd J. Toops; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Diesel Oxidation catalyst; heavy-duty vehicles; catalyst deactivation; biodiesel; NAP-XPS; XANES; Phosphorus; alkali metals; Pt Pd Al2O3; Chemical Engineering; Kemiteknik;

    Abstract : To reduce net greenhouse gas emissions, a shift towards adoption of biofuels is ongoing in the transport sector. Heavy-duty diesel vehicles are equipped with aftertreatment equipment, comprising of catalysts and filters, and how this equipment is affected by the use of biofuels is not yet fully understood.

  5. 5. Fundamental studies of catalytic systems for diesel emission control

    Author : Xavier Auvray; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NH3 SCR; NO oxidation; sulfur; hysteresis; kinetic modeling; SpaciMS; catalyst acidity; DOC; aging; Pt Al2O3;

    Abstract : Due to global lean exhaust gas and new emission regulations, exhaust aftertreatment systems of diesel engines are more and more sophisticated and composed of a series of catalytic units. In the present work, two of these catalytic systems were studied with different approach. READ MORE
