Fuel Tech Inc. is a world leader in advanced engineering solutions for the optimization of combustion systems and emissions control in utility and industrial applications. The company’s technologies enable customers to produce both energy and processed materials in a cost-effective and environmentally sustainable manner.
The company today announced receipt of air pollution control orders totaling $4 million. The largest of these orders was placed by a major US power producer. It was for nitrogen oxide (NOx) reduction projects on two coal-fired boilers. These projects will utilize Fuel Tech’s HERT High Energy Reagent Technology and NOxOUT Selective Non-Catalytic Reduction (SNCR) injection technologies.
Equipment deliveries for these projects are scheduled for the third quarter of 2011.
A second order was received for an ULTRA system on a gas-fired unit from a US municipal power plant. This technology provides for the safe and cost-effective on-site conversion of urea to ammonia for use as a reagent in the catalytic reduction of nitrogen oxide. It eliminates the hazards associated with the transport, storage and handling of aqueous ammonia. Equipment delivery is scheduled for the first quarter of 2011.
These orders are part of a larger alliance agreement which the company signed in March 2010. The agreement calls for the potential supply of SNCR systems and related services for multiple coal-fired generating units. The latest orders represent the eighth and ninth order so far for the SNCR system to be received by Fuel Tech since March.
