This project was accepted into TIP with the goals of scaling up cerium, cobalt, and copper (CCC) material to >1kg batch size, coating CCC material and PGMs on a cordierite substrate monolith for engine study, and comparing the full-scale CCC catalyst with state-of-the-art commercial catalysts. Since the project began, Dr. Parks’ team has developed a procedure for making large batches of active catalysts with even better reactivity than predicted, and they have transferred the technique to a company to produce 10 kg batches of active catalyst powder. Once the full-scale catalyst is produced, engine studies will be conducted at ORNL’s National Transportation Research Center engine dynamometer laboratories.
The biggest advantage of this technology is that it can oxidize pollutants at lower temperatures than ever before with lower overall cost. In addition to automotive and trucking applications, the catalyst offers similar advantages for power generation from stationary sources such as gas turbines.
