The paper describes a combined experimental and theoretical study, undertaken to quantify the impact of fuel and process parameters on reburning effectiveness and provide the scaling information required for commercial application of reburning under highly varied industrial conditions. Study results confirm the potential of reburning for significant NOx reductions, but also demonstrate that a constant reburning effectiveness cannot be assumed under all conditions. The NOx reduction possible through reburning depends primarily on: the NO concentration at the end of the primary zone; the stoichiometry, temperature, and residence time in the fuel-rich reburning zone; the mixing and stoichiometry of the reburning fuel jet; and the temperature in the final burnout zone.
