The report gives results of an assessment of current and developing combustion modification NOx control technology for coal-, oil-, and natural-gas-fired industrial boilers. Control effectiveness and applicability, reliability and availability, process impacts, capital and operating costs, energy impacts, and environmental impacts are evaluated. Currently available techniques are capable of moderate (10-25%) NOx reductions for coal- and residual-oil-fired boilers and major (40-70%) reductions for distillate-oil- and gas-fired units with minimal adverse operating impacts. Combustion modifications are estimated to increase the cost of steam by only 1-2%, but could increase the initial capital cost of a boiler by 1-20%. Analysis of measured or postulated incremental emissions, other than NOx, indicates that these emissions are generally unaffected when preferred NOx controls are implemented, although further testing is warranted.
