Fuel Tech, Inc. — an engineering solutions company focused on combustion systems and emissions control in utility and industrial applications — has secured multiple air pollution control (APC) contracts from customers in China and the US, valued at approximately $2.2 million.
In China, the company will supply multiple ULTRA™ systems that will be installed on utility coal-fired units being retrofitted with nitrogen oxide (NOx) reduction technology. Equipment deliveries are expected during the third quarter of 2015.
“Our ULTRA technology simplifies onsite ammonia generation for SCR applications of all types. We continue to see opportunities in China as that government addresses increasing public pressure to reduce harmful air pollutants,” said Vincent Arnone, president and chief executive officer. "Our ESP particulate control solutions allow plant operators to meet the regulations under the utility MATS Rule and the Boiler Maximum Achievable Control Technology (MACT) Rule for industrial boilers.”
In the U.S., Fuel Tech will supply an Electrostatic Precipitator (ESP) retrofit for a coal-fired unit in the Midwest. Delivery of the equipment is scheduled for the second quarter of 2015. The company will also supply its ESP equipment and optimization services for an industrial boiler in the Midwest, with delivery scheduled for the second quarter of 2015.
