Purification of waste gas by catalytic processes
Catalysts are substances widely used not only in the manufacturing industry, but also in the field of waste gas purification. Due to the increasing demands on emissions limit, it is necessary to improve currently used catalysts, and to study and develop new ones.
In terms of gas purification by catalytic processes we are dealing with:
- Investigation/ Study of catalysts for the reducing the nitrogen oxides (NOx, N2O) emissions by direct catalytic decomposition and selective catalytic reduction of NOx with ammonia.
- Study of catalysts for reducing ammonia emissions by selective catalytic oxidation.
- Study of heterogeneous catalysts for the oxidation of toxic and chlorinated VOCs from the gas phase (e.g. dichloromethane, perchlorethylene, formaldehyde/methanol, etc.).
- Study of the effect of the preparation procedure and used (metal) precursors on the key physico-chemical properties of the developed catalysts.
- Testing the catalytic activity, selectivity and stability of prepared catalysts.
- Study of the mechanism and kinetics of catalytic reactions.
- Transfer of data obtained by laboratory measurements to larger scale and design of the supported catalysts.
- Correlation of experimental results with molecular modeling.
