NOx emission limits throughout the world are becoming more stringent with many countries establishing 2017 limits in the 100-200 mg/Nm3range. The IED in Europe, the CSAPR in the US, and proposed new regulations for most emerging markets are driving coal-fired power plant owners to take a holistic view of NOx compliance strategies.
It is not simply a matter of specifying and purchasing NOx reduction equipment, it is now about coming up with a strategy that makes the best use of a unit’s boiler, fuels fired, personnel, and available in-furnace and post-combustion technologies.
In this informative webinar, Paul Kazalski, Senior Project Manager for Amec Foster Wheeler, will review key elements of a comprehensive evaluation of NOx control alternatives in key markets. Topics presented will include:
- Fuel fineness and fuel balancing as indirect methods for reducing NOx
- Technologies applied as direct methods for reducing NOx – Combustion Controls, Low NOx Burners, Overfire Air, SNCR, and SCR
- How each technology alternative should be viewed in terms of:
- High NOx Reduction vs. Cost
- Capital Costs vs. Operating Costs
- Incremental Benefits & Staged Approach
- Space Constraints
- How technology evaluation and selection provides the appropriate compliance strategy for:
- Meeting Current and Future Targets
- Buying vs. Selling NOx Credits (if applicable)
- Does the best technology fit with the plant’s operational strategy
- Baseload unit vs. Intermittent unit
- NOx-reducing equipment vs. cleaner coals
In addition, a case study for a de-NOx project at Dalian Huaneng (China) will be discussed wherein an SCR system was included in the scope of a low NOx combustion system. Using the US EPA-developed CUECost software package for air pollution control system cost estimates, the case study illustrates reductions in the overall cost of compliance using a combination of technologies including SCR.
Attendees can ask questions which will be covered during the Q&A session of the webinar.
This webinar can help you make informed decisions about NOx compliance strategies for your specific boiler.
