Effect of silver loading on the lean NOx reduction with methanol over Ag-Al2O3
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2013
The influence of silver loading on the lean NO x reduction activity using methanol as reductant has been studied for alumina supported silver catalysts. In general, increasing the silver loading (0-3 wt%), in Ag-Al 2 O 3 , shifts or extends the activity window, for lean NO x reduction towards lower temperatures. In particular Ag-Al 2 O 3 with 3 wt% silver is active for NO x reduction under methanol-SCR conditions in a broad temperature interval (200-500 C), with high activity in the low temperature range (maximum around 300 C) typical for exhaust gases from diesel and other lean burn engines. Furthermore, increasing the C/N molar ratio enhances the reduction of NO x . However, too high C/N ratios results in poor selectivity to N 2 . © 2013 Springer Science+Business Media New York.
