Cofiring Animal Waste in Low NOx Burners for NOx and Hg Reduction in Coal Fired Plants

This research project will develop new technology and provide additional market for cattle biowaste (CB) (manure) as fuel in coal fired plants. The goal is to demonstrate use of CB as a co-fired low fuel in low nitrogen oxide (NOx) burners (which serve as primary control of NOx in boilers) and demonstrate the new technology in reducing NOx and mercury (Hg).
