Removal of combustion products
As vehicles, their engines, and their fuels are redesigned to reduce the creation of pollutants, so too are zeolites being designed and employed to handle the new concentrations, combinations, and conditions of combustion products. One example involves the use of efficient, oxygen-rich, lean-burn diesel engines, which produce less CO2, a greenhouse gas. Metal-exchanged zeolite catalysts have been employed on these vehicles as a less costly and more effective option for NOx removal than the three-way catalytic converter.

Another emerging zeolite technology is lean NOx, a catalytic process that uses hydrocarbons such as methane and higher hydrocarbons as the reductant, making it practical for automotive and other mobile sources.

Zeolyst International is always open to partner with you to help develop a new custom catalyst for your application.
