Title: Meeting the Title I NO{sub x} requirements: A comprehensive approach

This paper will review the Title 1 NO{sub x} emission reduction strategy of an electric utility. Since 1995, New York State Electric and Gas has been operating its electric generating units under the nitrogen oxide emission requirements of Title 1 of the Clean Air Amendments of 1990. New York State Electric and Gas operates six coal fired generating stations which are located in the Ozone Transport Region of the Northeast US. The geographic location of NYSEG's generating stations requires additional nitrogen oxide reductions during the summer months. This paper will examine the comprehensive approach taken by NYSEG in meeting its environmental obligations. NYSEG used a mixed approach of operational optimization, installation of low NO{sub x} burners, and installation of advanced technology to reduce emissions. NYSEG has also been awarded two projects by the Department of Energy to demonstrate innovative nitrogen oxide reduction technology. The paper will include a review of the DOE projects and the results achieved to date. NYSEG's three years of operating experience under the Title 1 requirements will also be discussed. The paper will conclude with a review of what NYSEG is examining for future strategies as further NO{sub x} reductions are expected to be required towardsmore » the end of the decade.« less
