Characterization of thermal and chemical deactivation mechanisms of zeolite-based SCR catalysts

This project addresses deactivation of zeolite-based SCR catalysts. Deactivation leads to forced increased exhaust gas temperature to fulfil performance, which increases fuel consumption and climate impact. Possibly, RME and other bio fuels may worsen the situation. The project aims to identify and increase understanding of the mechanisms of deactivation.
