Fuel Tech, Inc. (Fuel Tech), a world 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 the US. These awards have an aggregate value of approximately US$4 million.

An order was received for an ULTRA® system that will be installed on natural gas-fired units in the Pacific Rim being retrofitted with selective catalytic reduction (SCR) 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. Engineering is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2017 (1Q17), with the first equipment deliveries starting early in 2018.

A second order was received for two ULTRA systems that will be installed on natural gas-fired units in the US Northeast being retrofitted with SCR technology. Delivery of these systems is scheduled for 4Q17.

Vincent J. Arnone, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “These orders reflect Fuel Tech’s ability to provide safe, cost effective environmental and emission control solutions for units utilising a variety of fuel sources, including natural gas. With our industry-leading suite of APC products and services, we believe we are well positioned to compete for additional global opportunities.”
