  • Johnson Matthey - Hydrocarbon-SCR Systems

    Johnson Matthey - Hydrocarbon-SCR Systems

    Hydrocarbon-SCR (lean NOx reduction) systems use hydrocarbons as the reductant. The hydrocarbon may be that occurring in the exhaust gas ('native') or it may be added to the exhaust gas. This has the advantage that no additional reductant source (e.g. urea) need be carried but these systems cannot offer the performance of ammonia-SCR systems.

  • Johnson Matthey - Model TWC - Three-Way Catalysts

    Johnson Matthey - Model TWC - Three-Way Catalysts

    Three-way catalysts (TWC) are designed to simultaneously convert three pollutants to harmless emissions: Carbon Monoxide (CO) → Carbon Dioxide (CO2). Hydrocarbons (HC) → Water (H2O). Oxides of Nitrogen (NOx) → Nitrogen (N2). A three-way catalyst can cut CO, HC and NOx by over 99% if the air to fuel ratio is accurately controlled.

  • Gasoline Particulate Filters

    Gasoline Particulate Filters

    Particulate number legislation for gasoline direction injection vehicles tightens with Euro 6c in 2017/18. Durability, soot regeneration, backpressure and catalyst activity are key issues, as they are for diesel particulate filters (DPF), although the challenges are very different for the different fuels, and the technologies cannot simply be transferred from one to the other.

  • SCRF - Model SCR - Integrates Selective Catalytic Reduction

    SCRF - Model SCR - Integrates Selective Catalytic Reduction

    The SCRF system integrates Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) with a soot filter – the next step for diesel NOx control. The schematic below demonstrates how the SCRF system for light duty diesel improves system compactness and is an example of how, over the European drive cycle, it warms up more quickly than an SCR downstream of a CSF (due to its closer proximity to the engine) enabling earlier NOx conversion.

  • Johnson Matthey - 2-way (Oxidation) Catalysts

    Johnson Matthey - 2-way (Oxidation) Catalysts

    In most gas streams, carbon monoxide (CO) and hydrocarbons (HC) can be removed by combination with oxygen (O2) using an oxidation catalyst (also known as a 2-way catalyst): CO + ½ O2 → CO2, [HC] + O2 → CO2 + H2O. This reaction is suitable for oxygen-rich (“lean”) gas streams, typical of diesel exhaust and many industrial process emissions. Many diesel particulate filter systems incorporate an oxidation catalyst, either as...

  • Johnson Matthey - NOx Adsorber Catalysts

    Johnson Matthey - NOx Adsorber Catalysts

    NOx can be removed from a lean gas stream by chemical adsorption onto a catalyst, hence the term NOx adsorber catalyst (NAC). The process of adsorption releases CO2.

  • Filter Regeneration

    Filter Regeneration

    Any filter has a finite capacity. Diesel particulate filters must be cleaned out, intermittently or continuously, if they are not to block. This is most important, since an overfilled filter can damage the engine through excessive exhaust back pressure and can itself be damaged or destroyed.

  • The CRT System

    The CRT System

    The CRT system is the most widely used DPF system in the world and is a patented Johnson Matthey technology. It comprises an oxidation catalyst followed by a DPF. The principle of its operation is shown below. 

  • The CCRT System

    The CCRT System

    The CCRT system is a CRT system, but with a catalytic coating also applied to the DPF.

  • Catalysed Soot Filter (CSF)

    Catalysed Soot Filter (CSF)

    As an alternative to the CRT and CCRT systems, it is possible in some applications a DPF system in which the catalyst is on the filter and no pre-catalyst is used. These systems are called catalysed DPFs (CDPFs) or catalysed soot filters (CSFs).

  • NO2 from Passive Filters

    NO2 from Passive Filters

    Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2) Emissions. Diesel engines emit oxides of nitrogen (NOx), consisting of nitrogen oxide (NO) and nitrogen dioxide (NO2). The percentage of each does vary, but typically NO2 might make up 10% of the total NOx coming out of the engine. Reports have linked continuously regenerating filter systems to increased emissions of NO2 from the tailpipe. These do not always contain sufficient information to enable the reader to make an...

  • Active Systems - Active DPF Regeneration

    Active Systems - Active DPF Regeneration

    Active DPF Regeneration. Any application in which it cannot be guaranteed that the exhaust gas conditions will be suitable for a passively regenerating system will require some active regeneration. Even in these cases, it is desirable to maximise the amount of passive regeneration that can be achieved since passive regeneration is 'free', requiring no additional energy.

  • The SCRT System

    The SCRT System

    The SCRT system is more than simply a combination of a CRT system and an SCR system. In this integrated design, the CRT performs two functions: it gives excellent conversion of CO, HC and PM, and it enhances the NO2 content of the gasses that pass into the SCR system. By optimising the gas mix supplied to the SCR catalysts in this way, excellent NOx conversions are also achieved.

  • NOx Adsorber Catalyst And A Diesel Particulate Filter (NAC - DPF)

    NOx Adsorber Catalyst And A Diesel Particulate Filter (NAC - DPF)

    A NOx adsorber catalyst and a diesel particulate filter may be used together to give effective removal of CO, HC, PM and NOx from a diesel exhaust. Different system configurations using the two technologies have been developed by Johnson Matthey to achieve a suitable balance between performance, durability and size.

  • Mining Non-Road Mobile Machinery

    Mining Non-Road Mobile Machinery

    Dealing with diesel emissions at source. Diesel engines are a valuable power source for underground mining but their emissions can be a disadvantage. These emissions are best dealt with at source through the use of exhaust treatment. The need to reduce particulate engines from mining machines is most pressing, driven by new regulations and an increasing understanding of detrimental health effects of exposure to fine particles.

  • Locomotive-Rail Applications

    Locomotive-Rail Applications

    Maintaining the environmental advantages of rail transport. Regulations covering the emissions from diesel engines in locomotives have not kept pace with the emission limits placed on heavy duty trucks, buses and non-road equipment. However, the US EPA has recently issued New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) for Tier 4 line haul and switcher locomotives. In order to meet these stringent Tier 4 NOx and PM limits, a variety of technologies including...
