Combustion processes produce nitrogen oxides (NOx), which are contained in the flue gases and lead to considerable pollution of the environment. In flue gas denitrification, a distinction is made between primary and secondary measures.

As relevant primary measures, we reduce the formation of NOx in the furnace. These include the way the flue gas is circulated, the air staging and the fuel staging.

Secondary measures reduce the NOx formed in the combustion process. A distinction is made between the SNCR process (Selective Non Catalytic Reduction) and the SCR process (selective catalytic reduction).

We see the SNCR process as the usually better secondary measure for flue gas denitrification. They benefit from significantly lower costs and smaller space requirements compared to the SCR process (approx. 1/10 of the costs of the SCR process).
