Title: SCR comes of age

Abstract

The authors take a close look at selective catalytic reduction (SCR), which has become the predominant post-combustion technology for reducing emissions of nitrogen oxides (NOx) from utility boilers, both in the United States and worldwide. An added, unanticipated benefit of SCR technology is the enhancement of Hg removal in coal-fired power plants. However, additional work remains to be done in developing low-temperature catlysts, in-situ catalyst regeneration processes, and hybrid SNCR/SCR systems. 10 refs., 1 fig., 1 photo.
