These field tests investigated the effect of changes in combustion conditions and operation of selective catalytic reduction systems on flue gas emissions from a coal-fired boiler.
Selective catalytic reduction systems in power plants are designed to remove nitrogen oxides from flue gas and can also oxidize and remove mercury. But laboratory tests indicate that carbon monoxide can inhibit mercury oxidation across selective catalytic reduction catalysts. This study evaluated two catalyst formulations under actual flue gas conditions to confirm these effects.
