Fuel Tech Wins $2.6 M in Air Pollution Control Orders
Fuel Tech, Inc., has received multiple air pollution control contracts totaling $2.6 million.
The largest of these orders, which originated in China, represents NOxOUT® Selective Non-Catalytic Reduction (SNCR) systems for four circulating fluidized bed combustion units at an industrial plant in Guangzhou City, the capital of Guangdong Province. Equipment deliveries for this project, which is designed to satisfy nitrogen oxide (NOx) emission requirements in anticipation of the upcoming Asian Games, are scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2010.
Elsewhere overseas, an ULTRA system will be installed on a coal-fired district heating plant in the Lombard region of Italy. This system will provide the ammonia source for a new SCR system being installed for NOx control. Equipment deliveries are scheduled for the second quarter of 2010. The process converts urea reagent onsite for use as a reducing reagent in the selective catalytic reduction of NOx, eliminating the hazards associated with the transport, storage and handling of anhydrous or aqueous ammonia.
In addition, a contract was received for a NOxOUT SNCR system for a biomass-based circulating fluidized bed combustor in California. Supplemental equipment orders for previously announced business from a domestic electric utility also were received, as well as an equipment order from a domestic manufacturing company.
Lastly, five modeling orders were secured: two from an existing Korean client; one from a Midwestern electric utility; one from a domestic oil refinery; and one from a domestic electric generating station.
