Choosing between SNCR and SCR when building a new NOx control system
Secondary Emission Control Technology used in Power Plants and Utilities to control emissions of Nitrogen Oxides (NOx) can be Selective Non Catalytic Reduction (SNCR) or Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR). SNCR and SCR are both common technologies used for NOx control. However, it is not an easy choice to know which one to choose.
If you need to reduce NOx emissions in an existing plant where there is currently no NOx control measures installed, Yara can help you to evaluate the best possible technique with regards to combustion process, operating parameters, NOx levels in flue gas, NOx cap levels to be achieved, etc.
Based on your process data, our technology experts are able to design, build and install a tailor-made SNCR or SNCR/SCR hybrid system for you, also considering CAPEX / OPEX, as well as the ideal choice of reagent.
As a world leader with over 200 installations, Yara Environmental Technologies, formerly known as Petro Miljö, is also the ideal partner for turn-key plants requiring an SNCR or SNCR/SCR hybrid system.
