NOx is produced from the reaction between nitrogen, oxygen and even hydrocarbons (during combustion), especially at high temperatures. Nitrogen oxide compounds are one of the harmful emissions that can result from fuel combustion. This research aims to find out the performance of super hydrophobic membrane contactors in the absorption process of N2O from its mixture with air using acid solution and hydrogen peroxide. N2O gas must be reduced from the exhaust gas especially to meet the regulations applicable to the environment due to the hazardous nature of the N2O gases. The experimental results showed that the amount of NOx absorbed and the absorption efficiency increased with increasing absorbent flow rate in the membrane contactor. Meanwhile, the concentration of NOX in the outlet gas decreased with increasing absorbent flow rate.
