Denox catalysts Last month, Haldor Topsøe A/S (Lyngby, Denmark; www.topsoe.com) announced its participation in ProNOx, a new four-year, $4-million research program to improve selective catalytic reduction (SCR) catalysts. Together with two research teams from the Dept. of Chemistry and the Interdisciplinary Nanoscience Center at Aarhus University (Denmark; www.au.dk), Topsøe aims to optimize titanium dioxide nanoparticles to improve the efficiency of catalysts used for cleaning off-gases from engines, industry and power plants. Currently, the most effective catalyst for removing oxides of nitrogen (NOx) consists of TiO2 crystals covered with highly dispersed vanadium oxides. ProNOx researchers aim to identify an industrially viable nano-design of the vanadium-covered titanium oxides that will improve the catalyst’s performance by 30%. The program will utilize the most recent research on how to control materials synthesis at the atomic scale by closely integrating synthesis, characterization, modeling and tests. The end-goal is to identify the optimal SCR catalysts and how to produce them in a controlled way. Approximately $2.8 million in funding for ProNOx is provided by Innovation Fund Denmark (Copenhagen; www.innovationsfonden.dk).
