  • Research, development and implementation of simultaneous low No(x)/CO combustion technology for gaseous fuel firing in the iron and steel industry


One of the main anthropogenic sources of the atmospheric pollution originated by NO(x) and CO emissions comes from high temperature combustions such as the ones produced in the reheating furnaces in the iron and steel industry. The works carried out along the STELFLAM Project have been performed to reach the reduction of those emissions including the following main objectives: extension of the current knowledge on formation mechanisms of the NO(x) and CO in combustion processes for variable conditions of furnace performance; use of mathematical models for the improvement of predictions of NO(x) and CO emissions in mixed gas type burners; retrofitting current burners to achieve lower NO(x) and CO emissions without any decrease of thermal efficiency.
