 INTRODUCTION  Increasingly stringent environmental legislation is requiring the coal power sector to install high-efficiency abatement technologies. In this regard, the South African Air Quality Act 2004 establishes new NOX emission standards to be applied in the period 2015-2020. At the same time, this sector is also required to take into

ABSTRACT The paper discusses the fundamentals and results achieved by the application of state-of-the-art technology, named ABACO, in refinery fired-heaters and boilers. The improved controls provided by this technology results in increased combustion efficiency, minimum pollutant emissions (CO2, CO, NOx, SOx, particles) and safer operation. This technology relies on the

ABSTRACT Power sector is currently seeking for the cost-effective minimization of NOx emissions. This demanding challenge has been met by INERCO through a technological approach successfully applied in a European coal-fired power plant, whose scope and results are hereinafter described. Firstly, advanced combustion technologies lead to a maximum intensification of
