Compact de-NOxer for automotive exhaust

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Our two year project concluded with mixed results. The basic idea of using ozone and hydroxyl radical in a two stage plasma chemical reactor to remove NO{sub x} from automotive exhaust proved to be correct. However we found the energy needed to operate the plasma chemical reactor is 30% of the engine`s output, which is three times larger than that of the conventional catalytic converter. Our project is a partial success. If compactness is dropped as a requirement for our plasma-chemical reactor so that it is applicable to stationary rather than mobile power generators, then the reactor needs only 5% ... continued below

Our project is a partial success. If compactness is dropped as a requirement for our plasma-chemical reactor so that it is applicable to stationary rather than mobile power generators, then the reactor needs only 5% of the engine`s power. The energy inefficient component of the reactor, the part which makes our reactor compact, would be unnecessary. Thus our reactor has the potential for being a practical device to remove the NO{sub x} from the emissions of power plants.
