NOx control for high-ash coal-fired plant. Our next webinar is on Wednesday 21 February at 12 noon (GMT), presented by Dr Maggie Wiatros-Motyka.
Many countries have strict emission limits for nitrogen oxides (NOx) and so NOx control systems are widely used on coal-fired power plants. India has recently introduced NOx emission limits so pollution control technologies will need to be installed. Two main issues will be considered:
1. The limited operational experience of NOx control systems in India.
2. Indian coals have a high level of inherent ash which can influence the behaviour of some NOx control systems, and so affects the technology selection process.
The new Indian standards have created opportunities for equipment manufacturers, as well as a need for global technology leaders to modify their products to meet local market requirements, particularly high ash content coal. This webinar will review available NOx controls for coal-fired units in general. With examples of recent developments, systems that could be successfully applied in Indian power plants are identified. The challenges facing Indian utilities are also considered.
