A new hollow fibre catalytic converter design for sustainable automotive emissions control

Mahyon, Nur Izwanne, Li, Tao, Martinez-Botas, Ricardo, Wu, Zhentao and Li, Kang (2019). A new hollow fibre catalytic converter design for sustainable automotive emissions control. Catalysis Communications, 120 , pp. 86-90.


State-of-the-art catalytic converters need an ever-high amount of precious-metal catalysts to meet stringent emission regulations. This research reveals an alternative design based on micro-structured ceramic hollow fibre substrates, yielding high conversion of pollutants at low catalyst costs, as well as a unique benefit of low pressure-drop, leading to high engine performances.
