Foam-based catalytic soot collector

At the end of the project, ArM will use the expertise gained for further design and development foam based catalytic component. Already the work done so far underlines the potential of foam materials for soot filtration applications. To this regard, the capability to predict the soot collection behaviour according to the intrinsic mater characteristics offers new possibilities to design a product for series applications. ArM has recognized this opportunity and since the end of the project a person has been place in charge for the development of foam filters on a full-time basis. Support from the design department and the prototype shop has also been ensured and planned. External measurements are already ongoing at e traditional partner of the DEXA cluster (CUTEC-Claustal).

In addition, the experience and the know-how gained in this project will also be beneficial for a German (BMBF) and a British (DTI) founded projects involving the implementation for series applications of foam filters for particle filtration.
