Flue gas emissions have had a major impact on our environment, both as greenhouse gasses and due to their acidification properties. Removal of NOx gasses is largely performed by the state-of-the-art SCR method. However, a common byproduct of the SCR reaction is N2O, which cannot be removed by the SCR catalyst. In this course, I have studied new and promising SCR catalysts as well as potent catalysts for efficient removal of N2O. By providing an efficient N2O catalyst, it is our hope that further reduction of greenhouse gasses may be possible.
