Catalytic Reduction of NOx by Microwave Assisted Chemistry
Los Alamos has demonstrated at lab scale a means to remove NOx from a simulated gas stream, and need to implement it at a utility or factory/process that generates NOx.
Carbonaceous material first adsorbs the NOx, and then the bed is purged by heating it with microwaves with O2 (an adsorb/desorb cycle).
One interesting implication--with this capability to remove NOx, it may be possible to operate boilers at higher temperature, for better overall optimal performance.
This was internally funded at the lab, and DOE/Fossil is interested.
