Abstract [en]

In today’s world regulations to reduce vehicle emissions are only gettingtougher, from said regulations the concept of a Selective Catalytic Reduction(SCR) unit was born, designed to provide a healthy dose of ammonia (NH3)to reduce the NOx compound into harmless components such as water andnitrogen. In this thesis novel approaches where investigated, by combiningthe fast physical absorption and desorption properties of a highly porous ma-terial such as zeolites with the high storage capacity of metal chlorides wecan potentially improve NH3 dosing in the low temperature operating range,such as when vehicles have just been turned on. Additive manufacturing pro-vides a faster and convenient processing route, that can cut down costs andallows for an inexpensive prototyping phase. With the aid of 3D printing weprepared a prototype cage-like shape using zeolite 13X with a combination ofPVP, binders and solvent,this structures would be used in conjunction withMgCl2, the latter would be enclosed the cage and so that their volume ex-pansion could be contained. This approach provides a low temperature rangefriendly solution for the release of NH3 in a SCR unit. The experimentationand characterization of the composites mixed by mechanical process showedgreat promise of what it can be achieved by incorporating zeolites and metalchlorides for ammonia storage and dosing. In the end a successful formulaand process to 3D print zeolite 13X using a PAM approach was deliveredthat showed similar results to untreated 13X.
