Abstract

Air pollution is a threat in which air has adverse effect on humans and ecosystem. It is caused by substances which may be a solid particle, liquid droplets or gases. Pollutants are classified as primary and secondary. Primary pollutants include carbon-monoxide and nitrogen oxides from automobile vehicle exhaust and secondary pollutants includes the sulphur-dioxide released from factories. Our aim of the project is to reduce the emission of harmful gases such as carbon-monoxide, CO2, unburnt hydrocarbons, nitrogen oxides (NOX) which are released from the stationary Engines. Nowadays Diesel particulate filters are used in high end vehicles to reduce the emission and we are using chemical solutions in our project to reduce the harmful gases released from stationary Engines. The chemical solution used in our project is ammonical cuprous chloride and potassium hydroxide and activated charcoal. Activated charcoal is coated on the baffle plates to absorb the carbon content and the heat generated in the combustion chamber and also filters the harmful nitrous and sulphur content produced from the engine. The experimental setup is tested at several load condition at 0%, 25%, 50%, 75% and 100% and on an average they show a reduction of harmful gases like CO by 36.66%, NOX by 37.6% and HC by 37.69%. This setup also eliminates the back pressure completely.
