"Launching a pilot line for the production of ecological catalytic systems, taking into account the sustainable recycling of critical materials".

Katalizatory filtry cząstek stałych DPF

About the project

The subject of the project is the verification, on a real scale, of the technology for producing a catalytic system for engine exhaust gases with reduced mass, meeting the Euro V and VI emission standards, using an innovative method of utilising waste so-called washcoat from the recovery of precious metals used to make the active layer of the catalyst.

Expected outcomes:

  • reducing the process costs of joining certain stainless steels used for catalytic monoliths,
  • reduced CO2 emissions into the atmosphere due to the lower energy intensity of the process,
  • use of critical metal waste


Acting in accordance with the requirements set out in Article 32c para. 2 of the Atomic Law of 29 November 2000, we report that in the last 12 months there has been no impact on human health and the environment from the activities carried out, and that there have been no releases of radioactive substances into the environment in connection with the activities carried out.
