The Enspirit project had a duration of  24 months, funded by the European Commission under Framework Programme 7, the project consortium consists of 4 SMES and 3 research organisations.

Nitrogen Oxides are significant contributors to Global Warming, being about 240 times more destructive than Carbon Dioxide (molecule for molecule) and are believed to play a role in the destruction of the Ozone layer. Some smogs and hazes are tinged brown by the presence of contain Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2).

Sulphur Dioxide emissions are a big contributor to Acid Rain which has been found to damage the ecology of mountain lakes & forests over hundreds of miles from the emission sources. It also converts to Sulphur Trioxide & then Sulphuric Acid in the atmosphere adding significantly to aerosols in urban smogs.

Nitrogen oxide removal system

The Enspirit project developed an advanced gas scrubbing technique employing ozone to enable the development of a nitrogen oxide removal system to work at ambient temperature.

Combined devices

The final pre-prototype incorporates a system of combined devices for the removal of heat, moisture, sulphur oxides, ultrafine particulate matter and nitrogen oxides. This provides a complete, cost-effective, energy-efficient way of meeting the EPA’s new tier 4 emission rules for new and older diesel trains beginning in 2015.

The research leading to these results has received funding from the European Union's Seventh Framework Programme managed byREA Research Executive Agency (FP7/2007-2013) under grant agreement no FP7-SME-2013-2-605019.
