Fuel Tech awarded APC orders

Fuel Tech, Inc., a leader in advanced engineering solutions for the optimisation of combustion systems and emissions control in utility and industrial applications, has announced the receipt of multiple air pollution control (APC) contracts from customers in China. These awards have an aggregate value of approximately US$3 million.

A contract was received for NOXOUT® selective non-catalytic reduction (SNCR) systems for a coal-fired utility boiler. Fuel Tech’s SNCR technology is a proven solution as combustion unit owners look to comply with more stringent NOX control requirements. An order was also received for a coal-fired boiler where the scope includes a NOOUT system plus upgrades to an existing selective catalytic reduction (SCR) system. This combination of technologies is part of our I-NOX® Integrated NOX reduction system approach to improve NOX reduction performance of a unit while providing operational flexibility. Equipment deliveries for both orders are scheduled for completion during the third quarter of 2017 (3Q17).

The company received two additional orders in China for ULTRA systems that will be installed on utility and industrial units firing coal and natural gas respectively, which are being retrofitted with NOX reduction technology. Fuel Tech’s ULTRA process provides for the safe and cost-effective on-site conversion of urea to ammonia for use as a reagent where SCR is used to reduce NOX, eliminating the hazards associated with the transport, storage and handling of anhydrous or aqueous ammonia. Deliveries for these projects will be completed in the 2Q17.

Vincent J. Arnone, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “We have announced approximately US$15 million in new orders thus far in 2017. We are excited about the I- NOX project that can provide flexibility and performance through a lower capital cost approach. Through our ongoing global business developments efforts, we are well-positioned to pursue those opportunities that leverage our ability to provide safe, cost-effective environmental and emission control solutions.”
