Abstract:

The objective of this effort was to determine the feasibility of using solid-state electrochemical technology to remove NOx from the exhaust of jet engines during static firing tests in jet engine test cells. This report details laboratory testing of electrolytes and spread-sheet-based design calculations. Data and design calculations suggest that electrochemical control of NOx is feasible in challenging environments however, implementation of a practical solid-state electrochemical NOx emission control device will require advances in the state of the art of electrocatalyst preparation that increase selectivity toward nitric oxide NO versus oxygen. p4
