What is NOx emissions?

8.7. Nitrogen Oxides (NOx) Emissions | netl.doe.gov 8.7. Nitrogen Oxides (NOx) Emissions NOx refers to both nitric oxide (NO) and nitrogen dioxide (NO 2 ). The environmental effects of releasing too much NOx into the atmosphere are listed below.

How does the EPA set NOx budgets?

The EPA established the statewide NOx budgets using recommendations from OTAG on how to reduce emissions from utilities and other sources of NOx. EPA’s rule is consistent with OTAG’s recommendation for utilities: an emission rate limitation as low as 0.15 lbs/mmBtu or, 85% from sources 1990 emissions rate.

How can we reduce NOx emissions in the otag region?

Based on the emission limit for utility sources, controls such as selective catalytic reduction (SCR) and selective non-catalytic reduction (SNCR) will likely be required on a number of units in the OTAG region. Such controls systems have been demonstrated to reduce NOx at a cost-effectiveness of less than $2,000 per ton at large sources.

How low can NOx emissions from IGCC power plants be controlled?

Although NOx emissions from operating IGCC power plants are quite low as shown above, stricter regulations may require control to levels as low as 3 ppm in the heat recovery steam generator (HRSG) stack gas. Following is a review of both combustion-based and post-combustion NOx control methods used for NOx emissions control.

What are the NOx control requirements for marine diesel engine installation?

The NOx control requirements of Annex VI apply to install marine diesel engine of over 130 kW output power other than those used solely for emergency purposes irrespective of the tonnage of the ship onto which such engines are installed. Definitions of ‘installed’ and ‘marine diesel engine’ are given in regulations 2.12 and 2.14 respectively.

What is the efficiency of NOx removal from coal?

NOx Emission NOx emissions averaged 0.245 lb/MM Btu, SO2 removal efficiencies in excess of 90 percent were achieved with typical emissions of 0.038 lb/MM Btu, particulate matter emissions were 0.0047 lb/MM Btu, and CO emissions were less than 130 ppm at 3.0 percent O2.
