In this study, the denitrification performance of steel slag modified by manganese slag was studied. Different proportions of steel slag and electrolytic manganese anode mud mixtures were configured. The different proportions of the mixture would have varied physical and chemical properties. SS1+EMAM2 catalyst showed the nearly 100% NOx removal efficiency at 175°C. The specific surface area of steel slag is enhanced dramatically after modification by EMAM. Adding EMAM enhanced the weak acid sites and Brønsted-acid sites on the catalyst surface, resulting in a higher low-temperature SCR activity.
