Engineered MSW Fuels can Reduce NOx and other Emissions

by Allen Williams, P.E. (Ret)

A five year feasibility study was conducted using process modeling to design new fuels that could inherently reduce nitric oxides, sulfur dioxide and mercury emissions in power generation. The commercial station chosen for the study was a northeastern utility in Homer City with a history of emission difficulties. Heat data for the utility's unit 3 was available from diagnostic work done at this station back in the early 1980s...(the article continues at the International Journal of Science and Engineering Publication URL:
