Layered Pd/SSZ-13 with Cu/SSZ-13 as PNA−SCR Dual-Layer Monolith Catalyst for NOx Abatement
Journal article, 2020
A concept of a layered Pd/SSZ-13 with Cu/SSZ-13 as PNA-SCR dual-layer monolith catalyst for NOx abatement is demonstrated. NO-TPD was employed for determining the NOx storage, and the samples are characterized in detail using SEM-EDX, CO/NO-DRIFTS, XPS and H2-TPR. 750 °C hydrothermal treatment greatly promotes the NOx storage capacity and the addition of CO promotes NOx storage capacity and also shifts the NOx desorption temperature. The dual-layer sample (Pd/SSZ-13+Cu/SSZ-13) maintains most of the NOx storage capacity while the NOx desorption temperature is modified due to Cu/SSZ-13 as the top layer. The layered sample work well for NH3-SCR reaction. Notably, for Pd/SSZ-13+Cu/SSZ-13, more than 80 % of the NOx trapped at low temperature (i.e., 80 °C) can desorb in the suitable SCR temperature region where NOx conversion higher than 80 % is found. However, some loss of NO storage is found after SCR experiments. Overall, the dual-layer concept shows interesting potential for NOx abatement, but requires further developments on the PNA material to ensure stable storage capacity.
