Advanced technology for nitrogen oxide (NO{sub x}) abatement in flue gas using microwave irradiation of coal char

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

This is the final report of a one-year, Laboratory-Directed Research and Development (LDRD) project at the Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL). The project sought to demonstrate a new technology for the elimination of oxides of nitrogen (NO{sub x}) emission from fossil-fuel-fired industrial processes and power plants. The current technologies are not capable of meeting the government mandates for NO{sub x} emission scheduled for implementation in 1997. The approach is completely new in that microwave energy is the driver for the NO{sub x} removal process that operates at greater than 98% NO{sub x} removal efficiency. Flue gas containing NO{sub x} was ... continued below

The approach is completely new in that microwave energy is the driver for the NO{sub x} removal process that operates at greater than 98% NO{sub x} removal efficiency. Flue gas containing NO{sub x} was passed through a bed of carbon-based reducing agent (coal char) that adsorbed the NO{sub x}. The NO{sub x}-laden char was irradiated with microwave energy that reduced the NO{sub x} to nitrogen and carbon dioxide. The process has been empirically demonstrated in the laboratory on a small scale.
