Fuel Tech Profile


Fuel Tech is a leading technology company engaged in the worldwide development, commercialization and application of state-of-the-art proprietary technologies for multi-pollutant control of air emissions, plant process optimization, and advanced engineering services. These technologies enable customers to produce both energy and processed materials in a cost-effective and environmentally sustainable manner.

The Company’s nitrogen oxide (NOx) reduction technologies include advanced combustion modification techniques – such as low NOx burners, burner upgrades and over-fire air systems – and post-combustion NOx control approaches, including NOxOUT® and HERT SNCR systems as well as systems that incorporate ASCR, Advanced SCR, NOxOUT CASCADE®, NOxOUT ULTRA®, Rich Reagent Injection (RRI) and NOxOUT-SCR® processes. These technologies have established Fuel Tech as a leader in NOx reduction, with installations on over 580 units worldwide, where coal, fuel oil, natural gas, municipal waste, biomass, and other fuels are utilized.

The Company’s FUEL CHEM® technology revolves around the unique application of chemicals to improve the efficiency, reliability, fuel flexibility and environmental status of combustion units by controlling slagging, fouling, corrosion, opacity and acid plume, as well as the formation of sulfur trioxide, ammonium bisulfate, particulate matter (PM2.5), carbon dioxide (CO2) and NOx. This technology, in the form of a customizable FUEL CHEM program, is being applied to over 95 combustion units burning a wide variety of fuels including coal, heavy oil, biomass, and municipal waste.

Fuel Tech also provides a range of services, including combustion optimization services such as airflow testing, coal flow testing and boiler tuning. Services to help optimize selective catalytic reduction (SCR) system performance include catalyst management services and ammonia injection grid design and tuning. In addition, flow corrective devices such as static mixers and the patent-pending GSG™ Graduated Straightening Grid (GSG), along with computational and physical modeling services, are available to optimize flue gas distribution and mixing in both power plant and industrial applications. Sorbent injection systems, which control sulfur dioxide (SO2) emissions, and flue gas conditioning systems, which improve particulate collection for electrostatic precipitators, are also available.

Many of Fuel Tech’s products and services rely heavily on the Company’s exceptional Computational Fluid Dynamics modeling capabilities, which are enhanced by internally developed, high-end visualization software. These capabilities, coupled with the Company’s innovative technologies and multi-disciplined team approach, enable Fuel Tech to provide practical solutions to some of our customers’ most challenging problems.
