The aim of the Enspirit project is to develop an abatement system for removal of heat, moisture, sulphur oxides, ultrafine particulate matter and nitrogen oxides for diesel engines from trains. The combined system will provide a cost-effective and energy-efficient way of meeting the EPA’s new tier 4 emission rules for new and older diesel trains beginning in 2015.
The project consortium consists of 4 SMES and 3 research organisations. The project will end during late 2015. More information can be found on www.enspirit.eu
The use of Catator’s mesh-based catalyst has made it possible to design a compact reactor where microwave antennas are integrated in the reactor unit. Once again proving that the mesh based catalyst offers novel reactor design solutions.
The research leading to these results has received funding from the European Union's Seventh Framework Program managed by REA Research Executive Agency (FP7/2007-2013) under grant agreement no FP7-SME-2013-2-605019.
Catator has developed a number of different catalytic burners for various applications during the last three decades. The cooled burners can be operated with most type of fuels and cooled with various coolants such as water, oil, chemical flow, evaporation, etc. The cooled burners can be extremely compact with a simple and low cost design.
Established in 2004, eco-burner Ltd has revolutionized the chafing fuel industry by offering the ultimate solution to traditional gel and wick heat sources; the refillable Chafo burner. Catator supply the mesh based combustion catalyst to Eco-burner.
