How does it work?
Umicore develops catalytically active aftertreatment solutions which transform pollutants into harmless gases before releasing them into the environment. The catalytically active materials consist of a combination of oxides and precious metals like platinum, palladium and rhodium incorporated into a porous structure which allows intimate contact with the exhaust gas. The composition and the structure enable the interaction with the exhaust gas and the chemical transformation into harmless compounds.
Since 1 December 2017, Umicore has acquired part of the former business of Haldor Topsoe, including the stationary catalysis business. Click here for more information.
