Westinghouse, PCI plan single-digit NOx

Westinghouse Power Generation and Precision Combustion Inc. (PCI) have announced a long-term agreement to develop, manufacture and sell new catalytic combustor products for high-efficiency gas turbines. Under the agreement, PCI will integrate its advanced technology catalytic combustor with Westinghouse combustion turbine technology to develop low single-digit, ultra-low NOx catalytic gas-turbine combustors for Westinghouse`s F-, G- and ATS-class combustion turbines.

Although the gas-turbine catalytic combustion technology has yet to be commercially demonstrated, it offers the potential to replace more established low-emission technologies, according to a statement from Westinghouse.
