For diesel applications, cold start accounts for a large amount of the total NOx emissions during a typical Federal Test Procedure (FTP) for light-duty vehicles and is a key focus for reducing NOx emissions. A common form of diesel NOx aftertreatment is selective catalytic reduction (SCR) technology. For cold start NOx improvement, the SCR catalyst would be best located as the first catalyst in the aftertreatment system; however, engine-out hydrocarbons and no diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) upstream to generate an exotherm for desulfation can result in degraded SCR catalyst performance. Recent advances in vanadia-based SCR (V-SCR) catalyst technology have shown better low temperature NOx performance and improved thermal durability. Three V-SCR technologies were tested for their thermal durability and low-temperature NOx performance, and after 600°C aging, one technology showed low-temperature performance on par with state-of-the-art copper-zeolite SCR (Cu-SCR) technology. This V-SCR catalyst was further compared with the Cu-SCR technology for hydrocarbon tolerance, sulfur tolerance, and ammonia storage capacity. The V-SCR technology had similar hydrocarbon tolerance, superior sulfur tolerance, and less ammonia storage than the Cu-SCR catalyst.
