  • A heterogeneous 1D dynamic model of SCR-de-NO{sub x} (SCR = selective catalytic reduction) monolith reactors is developed, based on the concept of the active catalyst region. Its predictions are practically equivalent to those of a previous 2D model, but its numerical solution is faster by 1 order of magnitude, making it suitable for predictive control applications. The model is successfully fitted to transient NO reduction data at different temperatures, space velocities, and NH{sub 3}/NO feed ratios over two commercial SCR monolith catalysts. The data indicate characteristic times up to several minutes. The model analysis shows that: (1) SCR dynamics aremore » determined by buildup/depletion of the catalyst NH{sub 3} coverage, which result primarily from a competition between adsorption of ammonia and its reaction with NO, the rate of NH{sub 3} desorption being markedly slower; (2) the dynamic response of NO conversion is slow compared to changes in the NH{sub 3} feed content, which is unfavorable for a feedback control system; and (3) positive/negative peaks of NO emissions vs progressive changes of the NH{sub 3} slip are predicted upon sudden load variations.« less
  • A dramatic kinetic study of the undesired oxidation of SO{sub 2} over a commercial V{sub 2}O{sub 5}-WO{sub 3}/TiO{sub 2} monolith catalyst for the SCR-DeNO{sub x} process is herein presented. Transient SO{sub 2} conversion data were systematically collected during experiments involving step changes of temperature, area velocity, and feed composition (SO{sub 2}, O{sub 2}, H{sub 2}O, and NH{sub 3}). Characteristic times of the system response were of a few hours: peculiar SO{sub 3} emission peaks were apparent upon increasing the reaction temperature and the H{sub 2}O feed content. The data were well interpreted by a dynamic kinetic model assuming that buildup-depletionmore » of surface sulfate species is rate controlling. The model accounts successfully also for the transient effects resulting from the interaction between the SCR-DeNO{sub x} reaction (NO{sub x} reduction with NH{sub 3}) and the oxidation of SO{sub 2}.« less
  • This work has investigated the steady-state activity of a Cu-ZSM-5 catalyst for NO reduction by hydrocarbons under highly lean conditions, typical of lean-burn engine exhaust, using a fixed-bed laboratory reactor. The efficiency of ethylene and propylene, both individually and collectively, as selective reductants for NO reduction is compared at different space velocities in order to characterize their kinetic behavior. Results have revealed that ethylene is a more efficient reductant than propylene due to its superior selectivity. Lightoff characteristics of both hydrocarbons and NO are shown to be very important in determining the catalyst's performance for the selective reduction of NO.more » Detailed data analysis has indicated that there exists antagonistic kinetic interaction between the two hydrocarbons, which is discussed in light of competitive adsorption/diffusion processes occurring in the zeolite pore structure. Discussions include important implications of findings related to the application of the Cu-ZSM-5 catalyst in automotive exhaust emission control. 24 refs., 8 figs., 3 tabs.« less
  • The kinetics of the reduction of Co/sub 3/O/sub 4/, CoO, and a number of cobalt-alumina catalysts differing with respect to the method of preparation have been investigated. In has been shown that cobalt exists on an Al/sub 2/O/sub 3/ surface in the form of the Co/sup 2 +/ ion in the Al/sub 2/O/sub 3/ lattice and in the form of a CO/sub 3/O/sub 4/ phase. It has been shown that the activition energy for the reduction of cobalt-alumina catalysts obtained by soaking increases with decreasing amounts of cobalt in the samples.
