The report gives results of a study to experimentally evaluate the effectiveness of four additive materials in controlling pollutant emissions from fossil fuel combustion: Trimex, PACE, KAP, and Glo-Klen. Each was carefully examined in a highly instrumented package boiler over the range of typical operating conditions (e.g., combustion intensity and residence time) for industrial and utility systems. Results show that none of the four reduce emissions of SOx, NO, CO, or UHC under any condition tested. Based on these results, the boiler operating problems, and the possibility that their use might create potentially harmful new emissions, none of the additives can be recommended as a means of controlling pollutant emissions.
