The NEKO-catalyst

The NEKO-catalyst

 

The novel catalyst can in principle dispense with the use of precious metals. In an appropriately designed stove it shows no loss of activity over a stretch of at least two heating periods. This catalyst can be used at very high temperatures (> 1000 ° C). Owing to the used materials, it has a very wide range of applications. The high temperature resistance of the catalyst allows the application in the combustion chamber. This enables the rapid attainment of light-off temperature of the catalyst (temperature at which the catalyst is active). The catalyst in the current stage of development has been specifically optimized for use in biomass combustion i.e. for residential combustion appliances such as stoves and boilers. It serves to reduce harmful exhaust gas components (i.e. carbon monoxide, particulate matter, PAHs, etc.). With the NEKO catalyst excellent conversions for these pollutants can be achieved particularly in the field of wood combustion.
