The report gives results of an environmental assessment field testing program on a tangential-coal-fired utility boiler. The aim of the program was to measure multimedia emissions changes as a result of applying combustion modification NOx control. Emissions of trace elements, organic materials, sulfur species, SO2, NOx, CO, and particulate matter were measured. These emissions were compared under normal and low-NOx operating conditions. Source operating data were also analyzed so that changes in operating parameters and efficiency could be assessed. The test were conducted on TVA's Kingston Steam Plant, Unit 6, a 180-MW, pulverized-coal, tangentially fired, electric utility boiler with a rated capacity of 582 Mg/hr (1.28 million lb/hr) steam. Burners-out-of-service and biased-burner firing were used for NOx control.
