Electrochemical promotion in a monolith electrochemical plate reactor applied to simulated and real automotive pollution control
The novel monolithic-type electrochemical promoted reactor (MEPR), filled with thick Rh and Pt coated films on thin yttria-stabilized zirconia (YSZ) plates, has been tested in simulated and real automotive exhaust gas. Ethylene oxidation and NO reduction by C2H4 in presence of oxygen were investigated in laboratory scale while the automotive bench testing was performed in the exhaust of a diesel engine. In all cases electropromotion was achieved, an advance which in addition to their compact and simple design, makes electropromoted units quite promising for automotive exhaust pollution control.
