Abstract
The report gives results of measurements of nitrous oxide(N2O) emissions from coal-fired utility boilers at three electric power generating stations. Continuous emissions monitor measurements were made for nitrogen oxide (NO), O2, CO2, and CO. On-line N2O measurements were made using a gas chromatograph (GC) with electron capture detection. On-line SO2 levels were measured on one unit using a GC with flame photometric detection. Stainless steel (SS) sample containers were used to collect flue gas samples for the evaluation of N2O formation as a function of time in the presence of NO, SO2, and water. The N2O on-line results were in the range from 'not detectable' to 4.6 ppm. The results did not exhibit apparent differences related to different boiler types and load conditions.
