The use of fossil fuels for energy has led to the significant emission of greenhouse gases from the stationary and automobile sources. Methane (CH4) is an abundant source of fuel found in large quantities in natural gas reserves or produced synthetically is an alternative fuel for motor vehicles, large track transportation, marine application because of its low carbon emission per energy produced. However, methane is a potent green house gas and needs to be fully converted to CO2 to prevent its release into the atmosphere. The present project aims at the development of novel, efficient and cost-effective catalytic systems for elimination of exhaust methane in catalytic converter.
