NO(x) reduction by air staging and reburning
Technologies for the reduction of NO(x) emissions arising from the combustion of pulverized coal can be divided into two main categories - those which aim to prevent the formation of NO(x) by modifying the combustion process itself. The flue gas clean-up technologies are generally considered to be expensive or are not proven for large utility plant. In either case a chemical reagent is required to react with the NO(x) and obviously operating costs can be reduced if there is less NO(x) to be treated. Generally, the flue gas clean-up technologies are only used in situations where very low absolute levels of NO(x) emission are specified.
