Özet

In this study, low temperature activity of Ag-Ti-Cu/Cordierite catalyst was investigated with liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) and hydrogen-liquefied petroleum gas (H-2-LPG) mixture as reductant. The selective catalytic reduction (SCR) catalyst was synthesized by impregnation method and characterized by Brunauer-Emmett-Teller (BET), Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) and X-Ray Diffraction (XRD) analyzes. BET analysis of the catalyst revealed surface area as 12.89 m(2)/g. Silver (Ag), titanium (Ti) and copper (Cu) nanoparticles were observed on the catalyst surface with SEM analysis. XRD analysis showed high dispersion of catalytic elements. The SCR performance tests were carried out at 170-270 degrees C temperature range, 30,000 h(-1) and 40,000 h(-1) space velocities, 1 kW, 2 kW, 3 kW and 4 kW engine loads with diesel engine real exhaust gas sample. NOx conversion efficiency increased significantly in the presence of H-2, especially at low exhaust temperatures. The maximum NOx conversion ratio was obtained as 89.53% with H-2-LPG reductant at 270 degrees C, 4 kW engine load and 30,000 h(-1) space velocity. (C) 2020 Hydrogen Energy Publications LLC.
