Minimizing Nox emissions from reheating furnaces

Objective

This project will investigate NOx reduction in laboratory and pilot furnaces for both air and oxy-fuel combustion with the support of CFD combustion modelling. The objective is to reduce NOx emissions from steel reheating furnaces while maintaining dood fuel efficiency and low CO levels for both air combustion and oxy-fuel combustion.

There are many potential ways to reduce NOx for older steel reheating furnaces, including low NOx burners, internal flue gas re-circulation, chemical scrubbing and oscillating combustion.

This project will give recommendations for the best techniques to reduce NOx emissions.
