Re ECF Project: 2014-68

Project Title: Development of SBA15-based bimetallic Ni-Zr catalysts for nitrogen oxides (NOx) abatement

Applicant: Prof HU Xijun, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology

Total Approved Grant: $1,334,360 (ECF & WWGF: 50/50)

Duration: 2/2/2015 to 1/2/2018

Project Status/Remarks: On-going

This project aims to develop a continuous catalytic system for NO x treatment via the selective catalytic reduction (SCR) process using volatile organic compounds (VOCs) as reducing agents. A prototype for air pollution control will be developed for evaluating the catalysts' durability and practicability. The designed catalysts could create an alternative reaction pathway to chemically reduce NO x by VOCs.

Summary of the Findings/Outcomes:
To be available upon completion of the project
