Reduction of NOX gases using copper zeolite catalyst


The conversion levels for NO decomposition over Cu-ZSM5(158) catalyst were studied using electrical heating element reactor. This was achieved by passing a stream containing 1% NO and 99% He through the reactor and measuring the concentration of the stream exiting the reactor. The conversion calculation process at various temperatures and contact times were presented, including the applicability of first order kinetics, i.e., whether the system follows the Arrhenius temperature relationship by calculating the equilibrium constants at each reaction temperature, and testing whether they produced a straight line on an Arrhenius plot. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the 8th World Congress of Chemical Engineering (Montreal, Quebec, Canada 8/23-27/2009).
