Abstract

Plasma-induced heterogeneous reactions are studied for the Iow T removal of NO as a function of the composition of the gas mixture. In a number of cases, the presence of a large silica or alumina surface area enhances the energy efficiency of the process several times. The most promising reaction is the 50 called 'fixation' of NO on y-alumina. An energy efficiency of 16 and 32 eV/NOx at respectively "65% and "95% NO conversion is obtained at an initial [NO] = 1000 ppm. This result is at least a factor 5 better than the plasma-induced heterogeneous reactions with NO reported before [1,2] .
