Mn-Ce/FA (M) and Mn-Ce/FA-TiO2 (M), using fly ash (FA) with and without TiO2 as the carriers, were prepared by an integral molding technique. With the increase of TiO2 content, the rates of NO conversion and denitration of Mn-Ce/FA-TiO2 (M) increased, and the NO2 and N2O formation rates decreased. It is found that TiO2 could effectively inhibit the excessive oxidation of NO and the generation of N2O. The effects of space velocity, oxygen concentration and ammonia nitrogen ratio on three types of nitrogen oxides (NO, NO2, N2O) and denitration rates of the Mn-Ce/FA (M) and Mn-Ce/FA-30%TiO2 (M) were further investigated. In addition, it is demonstrated that Mn-Ce/FA (M) and Mn-Ce/FA-30%TiO2 (M) were more suitable to be used in the environment of low sulfur and less water. View Full-Text
