Abstract : KSE has shown that both mordenite and copper mordenite function a effective catalysts for selective catalytic reduction of NO(x) at medium-to-high temperatures. In this phase I SBIR effort, KSE performed calculations and performed limited bench experiments using synthetic exhaust gas to demonstrate that combinations of the two catalysts can be used to provide effective reduction of NO(x) over a wide range of temperatures in the presence of ammonia. Extensive design calculations were performed based on information from an obsolete jet engine test cell (JETC) and a number of unverified engineering assumptions. Although the interpretation of these computations was considered favorable by the contractor, several features of the proposed design appear to be unfavorable: the back pressure is calculated to be 10 inches wg, which is twice Radian 5 recommendation to EPA, and 10 times the Air Force's target value. jg
