Fuel Tech Awarded Air Pollution Control Orders Totaling $2.5M; Includes SNCR Orders In The U.S. And China

Stocks in this article: FTEK

Fuel Tech, Inc. (NASDAQ: FTEK), a world leader in advanced engineering solutions for combustion and emissions control systems for utility and industrial applications, today announced receipt of multiple air pollution control orders totaling $2.5 million.

The largest of these orders, placed by a new industrial customer, was an award of a Selective Non-Catalytic Reduction (SNCR) project for three steam generating units located in the Southeast U.S. Fuel Tech’s SNCR process is a post-combustion nitrogen oxide (NOx) reduction method which reduces NOx through the controlled injection of reagent into the post-combustion flue gas path. Equipment deliveries are currently scheduled for the third quarter.

In China, an award was received from a new utility customer for two SNCR systems on small coal-fired units. This order is the result of new regulatory requirements for Key Point Regions in accordance with the country’s Twelfth Five-Year Plan that went into effect last year. Equipment deliveries are currently scheduled for the end of the second quarter.

Douglas G. Bailey, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “We are pleased that these utility and industrial customers have selected our SNCR technology as part of their strategies to achieve NOx reduction compliance. With our proven technology and over 700 installations worldwide, including over 85% of the installed global SNCR base, Fuel Tech is the demonstrated NOx reduction leader.”
