Emission Control Technologies

NOx Control

Fluor, with experience on 65 units generating almost 40,000 MW of power, offers solutions for reduction of nitrogen oxides (NOx), including efficiency improvements, low- NOx burners, staged combustion using various forms of over-fire air, Selective Non-Catalytic Reduction (SNCR), Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR), Electro Catalytic Oxidation (ECO), along with plant upgrades and modifications necessary to implement these technologies.

SOx Control

Fluor is a leader in EPC retrofit projects for control of SOx. Fluor's experience on more than 75 units generating nearly 20,000 MW of energy includes: wet flue gas desulfurization (FGD), spray dry FGD and seawater FGD. Fluor also has experience with injection technologies using limestone, lime and sodium-based alkalis for reduction of the SO2 and SO3.

Particulate Control

Fluor has provided EPC services for 53 units operating more than 16,000 MW of power for particulate control projects including wet and dry electrostatic precipitators and fabric filters. Fluor offers EPCC solutions for total particulate matter (PM), PM 10, PM 2.5, condensable PM and stack visibility issues.

Mercury Capture

Fluor offers a unique EPC approach for mercury capture by integrating the capture process into the power plant. Fluor's experience includes pre-combustion additives, use of activated carbon (including halogenated activated carbon) and capture with fabric filters and various FGD technologies.

Hazardous Air Pollutants

Fluor offers EPC solutions to hazardous air pollutants (HAPS) including: HCl, HF and other acid gases, lead, selenium and other metals and organic HAPS.
