Abstract:

Catalytic converters have been effectively controlling the harmful exhaust gases to meet stringent emission norms. This article presents a new three-way catalyst developed using natural zeolite for effective emission reduction. The step-by-step preparation of the material for the developed catalyst is followed by its characterization using an energy dispersive X-ray (EDX), X-ray diffraction (XRD), and scanning electron microscope (SEM). The testing performed on a synthetic gas test bench (SGTB) shows substantial carbon monoxide (CO), hydrocarbon (HC), and nitric oxide (NO) reduction. Results show a 100% conversion for NO above 280°C, 54.8% for CO at 315°C, and 52% for HC at 500°C. The developed natural zeolite-based catalyst stands out from among current catalysts and can be endorsed for three-way conversions than the synthetic zeolite catalyst.
