Catalysts

Catalysts for small-scale combustion systems

 

We are specialized in integration of catalysts in small-scale combustion systems. Among other things, we offer catalysts that, in principle, can dispense with the use of precious metals. In appropriately designed stoves, this kind of catalysts shows no loss of activity over a stretch of at least two heating periods. It can be used at high temperatures (up to 800°C). Because of its temperature resistance, the integration directly into the combustion chamber is possible. This enables a rapid attainment of light-off temperature (temperature at which the catalyst becomes active). This kind of catalyst was 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.). Excellent conversions for these pollutants can be achieved particularly in the field of wood combustion.
