The objective of the project is to research and optimise the tail-end configuration of the nitrogen reduction process. This involved the erection of pilot plant (PP) and demonstration plant (DP), positioned downstream of the electrostatic precipitators and flue gas desulphurisation plant. The PP was used to investigate and optimise the basic feasibility of the process and the design of the DP, in particular: checking operating parameters in terms of maximum reduction efficiency and minimum energy consumption; assessing plant lives, wear, deterioration and activity fall-off of the catalysts; determining fouling and corrosion characteristics of the regenerative gas preheater. The DP was then used to show that the required NO(x) emission levels were achievable with the catalysts employed, and the functional reliability of individual plant components.
