Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) is basically a well-known technique to reduce oxides of nitrogen formed in combustion processes. Its application on large diesel engines, however, still needs special care due to the peculiarities of these engines with regard to the fuel and lubricants employed, type of operation, etc. This paper describes an SCR research plant which is connected to a 4 MW Sulzer 6RTA38 two-stroke engine, running on a high sulphur heavy fuel oil. The SCR test plant design was based on a comprehensive theoretical investigation, which is summarised in this paper. The results cover both general SCR aspects (reaction kinetics, fluid dynamics, etc) and diesel specific items (eg related to fuel and lubricants).
