The term NOx, or nitrogen
oxides, refers to the reactive gases that are formed
through the combustion process. Nitrogen oxides are
formed when fuels such as coal, natural gas, or even
waste/trash are burned at high temperatures.
The 1990 amendments
to the Clean Air Act were created specifically to
address NOx emissions. These NOx emissions have been
directly associated with environmental issues including
acid rain, ground level ozone and atmospheric ozone
Ammonia, both anhydrous
is injected in the DeNOx or de-nitrification process
to reduce the NOx and convert it into nitrogen and
water, allowing for a cleaner emission through the
The emissions control
systems that are primarily in use today to facilitate
the DeNOx process are Selective Catalytic Reduction;
commonly know as SCR, and Selective Non-Catalytic
Reduction, or SNCR.
The Selective Catalytic
Reduction process uses ammonia to reduce NOx by injecting
it into flue gases while passing over a catalyst.
Extremely high levels of NOx reduction, typically
around 90 percent are accomplished in this manner.
SCR systems are in use at power plants, high pressure
boiler refractory with exhaust, chemical manufacturing
plants, and some steel mills and crude oil refineries.
The Selective Non-Catalytic
Reduction process relies on ammonia injection into
hot flue gas streams to react with the NOx at high
temperatures. The NOx reduction varies with technologies
and fuels that are burned, but typically a 50-70 percent
reduction rate is achieved.
