The combustion of diesel fuel produces carbon monoxide CO and HC hydrocarbons.
These substances have a negative impact on the environment. In addition, carbon monoxide can form toxic aldehydes with hydrocarbons, which are responsible for the characteristic unpleasant smell of exhaust gases. Thanks to the chemical reaction taking place in oxidation catalysts, we have the ability to convert chemical compounds such as carbon monoxide and hydrocarbons into water vapor and carbon dioxide. In diesel engines with an installed DPF filter, the oxidation catalyst plays an important role in the process of passive filter regeneration. Installing an oxidation catalyst in systems with SCR catalyst, affects the efficiency of nitrogen oxides reduction due to the oxidation of some NO to NO2 oxides. The ratio of these two compounds has a significant impact on the efficiency of the SCR process. Our solutions are based on proven technology in which metal substrates are coated with precious metals such as platinum and palladium.
