Abstract: The main aim of this experiment is to reduce the concentration of NOx in the exhaust gas below 100ppm with the most effective technique named selective catalytic reduction (SCR) with ammonia over to evaluate the performance of honeycomb and plate type catalyst in NOx reduction by varying the performance parameters such as flue gas temperature, space velocity, NH3/NO molar ratio, etc., and to find the optimum values of the above parameters under which we get the maximum efficiency of NOx conversion at which air is not polluted and we have the sustained and eco-friendly environment. The effect of various performance parameters on the SCR process is also evaluated and the optimum values of performance parameters are also found to get the maximum efficiency of NOx conversion. SCR performance is substantially under the effects of reactant (ammonia) concentration and operating temperature, so that the concentration of untreated ammonia emitted from reactor discharge (ammonia slip) increases significantly at NH3/NO ratios of more than 1.14 and operating temperatures less than 360 ºC and 300 ºC, respectively, in the catalytic filter medium and honeycomb reactor. low level of ammonia slip can be achieved at the NH3/NO ratio of 1 and temperature range of 300–350 ºC in both reactors.The temperature of SCR is varied between 300OC to 350OC ,with a fixed space velocity of exhaust gas and a fixed value of NH3/NO ratio of 1.
