The symposium was the sixth in a biennial series devoted to the international exchange of information on recent technological and regulatory developments for stationary combustion NOx control. Topics covered included the significant increase in active full-scale retrofit demonstrations of low-NOx combustion systems in the United States and abroad over the past two years; full-scale operating experience in Europe with selective catalytic reduction (SCR); pilot- and bench-scale SCR investigations in the United States; increased attention on selective noncatalytic reduction in the United States; and NOx controls for oil- and gas-fired boilers. Papers from the following sessions are contained in Volume 3: Post Combustion Developments II; Combustion NOx Developments II; New Developments I; New Developments II; Oil/Gas Combustion Applications.
Key words: pollution; nitrogen oxides; combustion; catalysis; fossil fuels; pollution control; stationary sources; catalytic reduction; noncatalytic reduction. Includes bibliographical references. Prepared for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Office of Research and Development; and the Electric Power Research Institute; by William Nesbit and Associates. Microfiche.
