(Redirected from NOx Absorber)
- A Technology for adressing NOx Emissions
- Typically used for Diesel Exhaust Pollutants due to the engine not being suited to "three way" Catalytic Converters
- Not as common as Selective Catalytic Reduction systems it seems?
- Essentially works like a Pressure Swing Adsorbtion system?
- The wikipedia page doesn't have much info on what is done with the concentrated NOx
- The Wikipedia Page on NOx Adsorbers
- A "DieselNet . Com" Page Titled "NOx Adsorbers - W. Addy Majewski"
- An Article by "The Economist" Titled "The dieselgate dilemma" (Essentially it uses fuel/rich combustion to reduce the NOx to carbon dioxide and nitrogen. Volkswagen's system sort of worked, but this killed the fuel efficiency, and thus was turned off to achieve that, rather than achieve the less noticeable/monitorable (to the average driver) NOx/Km standard) (need to do math on fuel use vs ammonia/ DEF use)
- A 1997 Paper Titled "NOx Adsorbers for Diesel Applications: General Considerations and Operational Issues"
- A BASF Page on Their Diesel Oxidation Catalyst - Lean NOx Trap Combination
- A Video by the YouTube Channel "Er. Maneesh Genesan" Titled "How Lean NOx Trap LNT Works" (TLDW: A Somewhat poor quality (, but workable) Quick Presentation on How Lean NOx Traps work)
