Automotive Catalysis

Automotive sectors across the globe are pushing for new technologies to support their automotive emission initiatives to become greener and reduce their impact on the environment. At Luxfer Mel Technologies, we have developed customised formulations of zirconia to create optimal conditions for pollutant control within a catalytic converter.

Catalytic converters for gasoline vehicles simultaneously convert NOx, CO and Hydrocarbons in the exhaust (hence Three Way Catalysis (TWC).

Luxfer MEL Technologies Ceria Zirconia Mixed Oxides are a key component in this process as they act as an oxygen buffer to ensure optimal conditions for pollutant control.

We have developed customised formulations for gasoline TWC:

  • Gasoline Particulate Filters (GPF)

  • Diesel Oxidation Catalysts (DOC)

  • Diesel Particulate Filers (DPF)

  • Passive NOx Absorbers (PNA)

  • Selective catalytic reduction (SCR)

Luxfer MEL Technologies is committed to developing materials that offer a specific benefit in these individual applications, but with sufficient robustness that we can tailor then to suit the end user.

Mixed oxides for automotive TWC applications

The field of Autocatalysis is very much legislation driven and this varies significantly dependent upon geographical location.

Nano dispersions for advanced applications

Nano-dispersions contain nanometer-sized zirconium-based oxide particles in a purely aqueous and completely inorganic system.
