In recent years, new NOx control hybrid systems, using a combination of SNCR and SCR technology, have been developed. These hybrid systems reduce the level of nitrogen oxides (NOx) in fossil fuel combustion flue gas with a selective non-catalytic reduction (SNCR) treatment stage followed by a selective catalytic reduction (SCR) treatment stage.
A hybrid system may be an interesting alternative versus installing a single SCR system. Hybrid systems help to find a balance between investment costs (CAPEX) and operating costs (OPEX). This is particularly useful for cases where:
In such cases, the hybrid solution is the best choice: it reduces the size of the catalyst to be installed, thus reducing investment, and volume issues at the site.
