The report gives results of an assessment of the applicability of NOx flue gas treatment (FGT) technology to industrial boilers and is one of a series of technology assessment reports to aid in determining the technological basis for a New Source Performance Standard for Industrial Boilers. The status of development and performance of alternative NOx FGT control techniques were assessed and the cost, energy, and environmental impacts of the most promising processes were identified. Cost estimates of applying SCR processes in the U.S. indicated that the cost effectiveness varies significantly depending on the fuel fired, boiler size, and control level. For regulatory purposes this assessment must be viewed as preliminary, pending results of the more extensive impact studies required by Clean Air Act Sect. III.
