Commercial Hybrid SNCR/SCR Demonstration

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI), Pennsylvania Electric Energy Research Council, (PEERC), New York State Electric and Gas and GPU Generation, Inc. are jointly funding a demonstration to determine the capabilities of a Hybrid SNCR/SCR (Selective Non-Catalytic Reduction/Selective Catalytic Reduction). The demonstration site is at GPU Generation`s Seward Unit 5 (147 MW) located in Seward Pennsylvania. The demonstration will begin in late October of 1997 and will continue for a period of one year. The DOE funding is being provided through Grant No. DE-FG22-96PC96256 with T.J. Feeley as the Project Manager. The project will demonstrate ... continued below

Description

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI), Pennsylvania Electric Energy Research Council, (PEERC), New York State Electric and Gas and GPU Generation, Inc. are jointly funding a demonstration to determine the capabilities of a Hybrid SNCR/SCR (Selective Non-Catalytic Reduction/Selective Catalytic Reduction). The demonstration site is at GPU Generation`s Seward Unit 5 (147 MW) located in Seward Pennsylvania. The demonstration will begin in late October of 1997 and will continue for a period of one year. The DOE funding is being provided through Grant No. DE-FG22-96PC96256 with T.J. Feeley as the Project Manager. The project will demonstrate the operation of a Hybrid SNCR/SCR NO{sub x} control process on a full scale coal fired utility boiler. The hybrid technology is expected to provide a cost effective method of reducing NO{sub x} while balancing capital and operating costs. The process also provides a method for staging the NO{sub x} reduction performance and costs to suit the needs of the utility. An urea based SNCR system is currently in operation on Seward Unit 5 and the ammonia slip from the SNCR will be used as the reducing agent for the hybrid catalyst. The project goals are: demonstrate that hybrid technology is capable of achieving greater than 55% reduction from baseline NO{sub x} emissions while maintaining less than 2 ppm ammonia slip at the inlet to the air heaters; maintain fly ash marketability; verify the performance capabilities of two different types of catalysts (plate and monolith); determine the cost benefit and applicability of hybrid post combustion technology; and reduce forced outages due to ABS fouling of the air heaters. Since the demonstration will begin in October of 1997 and continue for a period of one year operating data is not available. Therefore this paper will describe the methodology of the system design and construction.
