Fuel Tech lands air-pollution-control orders

By Gerald Ondrey |

Fuel Tech, Inc. (Warrenville, Ill.; www.ftek.com) has received a number of air-pollution-control (APC) orders valued at $6.4 million. The largest of these orders, placed by a major U.S. power producer, for reducing oxides of nitrogen (NOx) reduction projects on three coal-fired boilers. Two of these projects are for large-sized boilers and will utilize Fuel Tech’s HERT High Energy Reagent Technology systems. The third project, a medium-sized boiler, will use HERT systems in combination with Rich Reagent Injection (RRI) technology. Equipment deliveries are scheduled for the first quarter of 2011. HERT systems use selective non-catalytic reduction (SNCR) technology for NOx control. RRI is an SNCR-type process in which a NOx-reducing agent, such as urea, is added to a staged lower furnace where the combustion zone’s fuel-rich region and elevated gas temperatures create an ideal environment for NOx reduction. RRI technology is licensed from Reaction Engineering International (Salt Lake City, Utah; www.reaction-eng.com) and the Electric Power Research Institute (Palo Alto, Calif.; www.epri.com). The remaining orders are for the following: Two orders for equipment on domestic APC projects; modeling of an SNCR study for a…
