Pollution and Particulate Control
Industrial and utility boiler systems and furnaces most commonly combust solid fuels including Coal & Bio-Mass to release heat that can be transferred to water to generate steam. Combusting any fuel creates undesirable byproducts in the flue gas that can be harmful to the environment, including Nitrogen Oxides (NOx), Sulfur Dioxide (SO2), and Carbon Monoxide (CO).
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in conjunction with local authorities mandate that environmentally harmful emissions be curbed to the approved levels and monitored to guarantee compliance. A variety of technologies can be used to control and monitor harmful emissions in the flue gas including Flue Gas Desulfurization, Electrostatic Precipitation, Carbon Capture, Wet Particulate Scrubbing, and Continuous Emissions Monitoring.
