Theses topics

Katalytický rozklad N2O ve strukturovaných katalyzátorech a reaktorech

Pomocí matematického modelování bude studován rozklad N2O ve strukturovaných katalyzátorech a bude navrženo provozní zařízení pro odstraňování N2O z odpadních plynů z technologie kyseliny dusičné.

Thesis supervisor: Doc. Ing. Bohumil Bernauer, CSc.

Stanovení difuzních koeficientů N2O, N2 a O2 v mikroporézních látkách metodou ZLC

Experimentální stanovení difuzních koeficientů metodou "Zero-Length-Chromatography" (ZLC) v zeolitech MFI a FER v závislosti na teplotě a složení plynné směsi bude prováděno v průtočné aparatuře. Vyhodnocení experimentálních dat pomocí jednoduchých modelů bude provedeno pomocí systému Athena Visual Studio.

Kinetics of catalytic decomposition of N2O on zeolite catalysts

The topic of this work is the study of kinetics of N2O decomposition on zeolitic (MFI, FER) and titano-silicates catalysts involving Fe and other transition metals. The work will be focused on kinetic experiments in aiminf to develop reliable kinetic model suitable for desing of industrial equipment.

Thesis supervisor: Doc. Ing. Bohumil Bernauer, CSc.

Kinetics of high temperature catalytic decomposition of N2O

The objective of this work is to provide the missing knowledge base for rational optimization of different categories of potentially functional metal/metal-oxo catalysts for the secondary step of the N2O elimination from the high temperature stream of the production of nitric acid, i.e. in wet and NO-rich streams under temperature regime between 750 and 900 oC. The most important output of this work is to evaluate robust support structures with oxygen vacancies and metal ions of variable valency with ability for decomposition of N2O to molecular nitrogen and molecular oxygen without destruction of the NO. The kinetic analysis at high temperature conditions will be used to elucidate the role of other components of the process stream in kinetic behavior of the catalysts involving long term deactivation.

Mathematical modeling of N2O-free ammonia oxidation catalytic reactor

The topic of this work is the development of dynamic mathematical model of catalytic reactor for high temperature ammonia oxidation in which new catalysts are applied allowing to decrease substantially N2O emission from nitric acid plants in comparaison with existing Pt-Rh catalysts. Both laboratory and process data will be used in aiming to design industrial reactor giving low N2O emissions.
