Fuel Tech has received multiple air pollution control orders from various countries including China, Chile, Korea, United States, and Estonia totaling $2.2 million. Fuel Tech is a leading provider of advanced engineering solutions for emissions control in industrial and utility applications.
The company has received two orders from China. The first order is for the supply of NOxOUT Selective Non-Catalytic Reduction (SNCR) systems for controlling nitrogen oxide emissions at three municipal solid waste incinerators, which are located at a single site in southwestern China. The equipment for the project are designed to adhere to the local environmental requirements and expected to be delivered during the third quarter of 2010. The second order from China is for a paper mill located in Guangzhou City, the capital of Guangdong Province. The NOxOUT HERT system is to control nitrogen oxide emissions from a pulverized coal combustion unit in the paper mill. Guangzhou City has initiated steps to control pollution in the city anticipating the upcoming Asian Games and is providing incentives for controlling nitrogen oxide emissions.
The other orders secured by the company include a mapping and modeling order from a Korean customer and a SNCR demonstration on a medium-sized electric utility boiler firing oil shale in Estonia. In Chile, the company has secured an order from an electric utility for a boiler conversion engineering study. In the United States, a Western electric utility has placed order for a HERT SNCR demonstration project. It has also received an order for an engineering study for a potential addition of a selective catalytic reduction system to a currently operating SNCR system.
John F. Norris Jr., President and Chief Executive Officer, said that the company is pleased to supply nitrogen oxide emission systems for the municipal sold waste incinerators in China and hoped to bag more orders from that country since the country is actively taking steps to increase the rate of solid waste treatment. Norris said that the company was delighted to receive its first order in Guangzhou City for nitrogen oxide emission control.
