Non-precious Metal Catalysts For Low Temperature Methane Combustion

As the push for alternative energy sources grows, natural gas has become a promising resource as it is significantly cleaner compared to traditional fossil fuels such as diesel. However, natural gas that does not fully combust can result in high methane emissions. Methane, the main component of natural gas, is a greenhouse gas 30 times worse than CO2. In order to reduce harmful methane emissions, low temperature engine exhaust catalysts (
