Fuel Tech, Inc., 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 China, the Middle East and the US. These awards have an aggregate value of approximately US$2.3 million.
In China, Fuel Tech received an award for a NOxOUT ® selective non-catalytic reduction (SNCR) system for a coal-fired utility boiler. The company’s SNCR technology is proving to be a viable solution as combustion unit owners look to comply with more stringent NOx control requirements mandated by China. Equipment deliveries are expected to occur during the 3Q16.
The company received additional orders in China for multiple ULTRA™ systems that will be installed on utility units firing coal, which are being retrofitted with NOx reduction technology. Fuel Tech’s ULTRA process provides for the safe and cost effective onsite conversion of urea to ammonia for use as a reagent where selective catalytic reduction (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 commenced in the 2Q16, and are expected to continue in the 3Q16 and the 2Q17.
Vincent J. Arnone, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “We are excited to announce this SNCR order with ISGEC and we believe that they are an ideal partner to introduce Fuel Tech’s proven emissions control technologies to India and other regional countries that are promising new markets for our solutions. Collectively, these orders continue to demonstrate our capabilities to provide cost effective technology solutions on a global basis.”
