B&W’s DRB-XCL® Burners Reduce NOx in South Africa

A major industrial petrochemical plant in South Africa needed to significantly reduce nitrogen oxides (NOx) emissions to comply with the country’s latest air quality monitoring, management and control standards. The National Environment Management: Air Quality Act required that levels be reduced to 750 mg/Nm3 for each combustion installation with a thermal rating of more than 50 MW. With levels rated at 1100 mg/Nm3, plant operators began to look at options to help achieve compliance.
