Innovative Technologies of Electrochemical Suppression and Electromagnetic Decomposition for NOx Reduction in Aeroengines

Project description

New technologies to curb NOx aircraft emissions

Improving fuel efficiency and reducing harmful emissions are key goals of aero engine manufacturers, as they constitute a large part of aircraft operating costs. The EU-funded DENOX project is working on breakthrough technology concepts to drastically slash nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions in gas-turbine aeroengines. The new concepts are related to the electrochemical suppression of NOx generation in the primary combustion zone and the electromagnetic decomposition of NOx molecules in the engine exhaust. If successfully demonstrated and further advanced to higher technology readiness levels, the DENOX concepts will help contribute to achieving the ambitious goal of ACARE of reducing NOx emitted by aeroengines by 90 % before 2050.
