Fuel Tech Gets Third International Air Pollution Control Equipment Order

July 1, 2007
Totaling $2.0 million, U.S. and Italian utilities join two Chinese utilities in implementing technology to control plant pollution

Utility/industrial combustions systems engineering and equipment manufacturing company Fuel Tech, Inc., recently announced two new air pollution control projects.

The first order, placed by a Southeastern utility alliance partner, is for NOxOUT Selective Non-Catalytic Reduction (SNCR) equipment to be installed on a coal-fired boiler. The second order represents the installation of a NOxOUT Ultra system at a small industrial plant in northern Italy.

Fuel Techs proprietary NOxOUT Ultra process provides for safe, cost-effective on-site conversion of urea to ammonia for use as a reagent in the selective catalytic reduction of nitrogen oxide, eliminating the hazards associated with the transport, storage and handling of anhydrous or aqueous ammonia.

President and CEO John F. Norris Jr. commented, "This announcement brings to three the total number of international NOXOUT Ultra orders received thus far in 2007, the first two having originated in the People's Republic of China."

Fuel Techs Fuel Chem technology uses chemical applications to improve efficiency, reliability, fuel flexibility and reduce the environmental impact of combustion units by controlling slagging, fouling, corrosion, opacity and acid plume, as well as the formation of sulfur trioxide, ammonium bisulfate, particulate matter (PM2.5), carbon dioxide and NOx. This technology, in the form of a customizable Fuel Chem program, is being applied to nearly 60 combustion units burning a wide variety of fuels including coal, heavy oil, biomass, and municipal waste.
