Abstract [en]

Shallow microchannels (Ø= 460 m) were successfully coated with different catalytically active phases, e.g., Cu-ZSM-5, Cu/(ZSM-5+Al2O3), Au/Al2O3, Ag/(Al2O3+Ionic liquid) and Ag/Al2O3, and tested on the hydrocarbon-assisted selective catalytic reduction of NOx (HC-SCR) with different model bio-derived fuels, i.e., methyl- and ethyl laurate produced by transesterification and hexadecane, a paraffinic component that can be produced by decarboxylation and/or decarbonylation of natural oils and fats. Characterization of the washcoats was done by means of X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), scanning electron microscopy with energy dispersive X-ray analysis (SEM-EDXA) and laser ablation inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (LA-ICP-MS), showing a dependence of the metal loading with the impregnation time and the precursor concentration. The Ag/Al2O3 catalysts exhibited, in general, the highest activities towards the NOx reduction. Optima in impregnation time and concentration of AgNO3 solution displaying the highest activity in HC-SCR among the prepared Ag/Al2O3 washcoats were established. A combination of Cu-ZSM-5 or Cu/(ZSM-5+Al2O3) and the optimum Ag/Al2O3 catalyst were tested in order to improve the low temperature reduction in SCR with hexadecane as a reducing agent. The enhancement of the activity at low temperatures (< 350 °C) was up to seven-fold compared to the case when only Ag/alumina was used. The effect of the hydrocarbon concentration (hexadecane) and the presence of water in the feed were also investigated.
