The tail gas stream from ammonia oxidation plants for the production of nitric acid contains nitrogen oxides, which present a pollution problem. These pollutants can be eliminated successfully by reduction with a fuel gas over Honeycat platinum on ceramic honeycomb catalyst, which has been developed and is produced by Matthey Bishop Inc. and Johnson Matthey Chemicals Limited. Such Honeycat installations in nitric acid plants are becoming numerous and widespread.
