SCRs: Still the go-to to nix NOx

web scr

For more than 30 years, selective catalytic reduction (SCR) systems have been widely considered the most effective method of post-combustion NOx reduction. What makes them still relevant? In this month's issue of POWER Magazine, B&W SCR subject matter expert Ryan Hensel talks about the benefits of SCRs and SNCRs, choosing the right technology for your plant, and more.

Pairing waste-to-energy with carbon capture technology, plant owners could take advantage of incentives through investment tax credits, production tax credits, and other revenue streams while also combatting greenhouse gases and climate change. B&W Project Developer Matthew Pierson explains how WtE checks all the boxes in American Recycler.

PROJECT SPOTLIGHT: Faroe Islands

web torshavn

At a recent maintenance stop at Tórshavn’s 3.5 t/h waste-to-energy plant on the Faroe Islands, we found the upgraded wear zone and furnace air system we installed last year were performing exactly as predicted from our CFD analysis. The controlled air shield injected through the larger wear zone combined with a secondary air system upgrade protects the refractory-lined roof and walls, resulting in a much better combustion process and lower maintenance costs.

Asked&Answered: B&W's BrightLoop™ chemical looping technology vs. SMR Tech

web askedblvssmr

Q. How does B&W's BrightLoopTM chemical looping technology fare against SMR technology?

A: BrightLoop chemical looping will produce low-carbon hydrogen at a cost better than current large-scale hydrogen generation technologies such as steam methane reforming (SMR) with carbon capture or electrolysis.
