Selective catalytic reduction for reduced NOx emissions

Nancy D. Stephenson,    Cormetech, Inc, Durham, NC, United States

Abstract

Selective catalytic reduction (SCR) technology is inseparably linked to regulations that require entities relying on energy and its byproducts that are created from the burning of fossil fuels to minimize their damaging impacts on our health and environment. Of primary concern here is the reduction of nitrogen oxides (NOx) created during energy production. Electric power generation and engine exhausts are substantial source contributors to this pollutant and it is the focus of this discussion to examine the fundamentals, use, and benefits of SCR as an essential control technology, with emphasis on its role in the ...
