Non-Selective Catalytic Reduction (NSCR)
In the catalyst industry, Non-Selective Catalytic Reduction (NSCR) is a common reference to Three-Way Catalysts. NSCR catalysts address carbon monoxide (CO) and hydrocarbon (HC) exhaust emissions via oxidation, while also converting nitrogen oxides (NOx) via reduction.
See the section on Three-Way Catalysts
section of this web sitefor further information.
NSCR derives its name from being a contrast to Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR), by which nitrogen oxides (NOx), in the presence of excesses of oxygen (O2), are “selectively” reduced by the reaction with other nitrogen-based compounds, such as ammonia or urea. See the section on Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) link on this webpage for further information.
