Fuel Tech receives air pollution control contracts worth $3.6Mn

Fuel Tech Inc. has received multiple air pollution control (APC) contracts, worth approximately $3.6 million, from customers in China, Europe and the U.S.

The first U.S. Contract is for an Electrostatic Precipitator (ESP) retrofit on a Midwest coal-fired unit. Delivery of equipment is scheduled for the first quarter of 2015. The equipment will improve the performance of the plant to meet the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) upcoming Mercury and Air Toxics Standards (MATS) for particulate emissions. The second U.S. contract is for a NOxOUT Selective Non-Catalytic Reduction (SNCR) system for a coal-fired boiler at a power generation facility.

“Fuel Tech’s solutions continue to assist coal and biomass-fired plant operators throughout the US create strategies to meet upcoming particulate regulations under the MATS Rule for utility boilers or under the Boiler Maximum Achievable Control Technology (MACT) Rule for industrial boilers,” said Douglas G. Bailey, chairman, president and chief executive officer.      

In China, two orders were received for Fuel Tech’s ULTRA systems that will be installed at both coal-fired and gas-fired power plants being retrofitted with nitrogen oxide (NOx) reduction technology. Additionally, the company will deliver its HERT High Energy Reagent Technology and NOxOUT Selective Non-Catalytic Reduction (SNCR) systems for multiple coal-fired boilers at power generation and petrochemical facilities. Equipment deliveries are scheduled for fourth quarter of 2014 and the first quarter of 2015.

A contract was also received for an industrial facility in France. The SNCR system is scheduled for delivery in the first quarter of 2015.
