Guide to Low-Emission Boiler and Combustion Equipment
Jun 15, 1994 · Low NOx burners are used to control NOx emissions. Normal operating temperature in the combustion zone is approximately 2,000 - 3,000 degF. The boiler produces 4,500,000 lb/hr of steam for a General Electric steam turbine generator rated at 688 MWe. Figure 2-1 is a diagram of the process.
When adopted for all 10 to 100 MMBtu/hr boilers older than ten years across DOD, the demonstrated technology has the potential to save $56 million of fuel costs annually, and avoid the emission of 600,000 tons of carbon dioxide."

The list of packaged boilers emissions that are controlled is long and the regulatory requirements of federal, state and local authorities overlap and vary widely by location. Many regulated pollutants derive from the fuel being burned and are usually addressed at both the federal and state level.

POLLUTANTS AND CONTROL TECHNIQUES. Combustion of standard fossil fuels (natural gas and ASTM Grade Oil) in commercial and industrial boilers results in the following nine emissions; carbon dioxide, nitrogen, oxygen, water, carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxide, sulfur oxides, volatile organic compounds, and particulate matter.
