Abstract
The report gives results of an evaluation of the technical feasibility of a photochemical pretreatment system for NOx control at coal-fired boilers. The approach utilizes reaction mechanisms similar to those responsible for photochemical oxidant incidents. The reactions are initiated under controlled conditions while the pollutants are at high concentration and while the reaction products can be removed. Results indicate that, under time- and light-limited conditions, it is possible to quench the photochemical reactions at the NO2 peak and prior to the formation of ozone, aerosols, and other secondary products. Photochemical oxidation of NO was insensitive to SO2 concentration and CO2 concentration. The photochemical system appears compatible with conditions resulting from combustion modifications to suppress NOx generation.
