This paper gives a general overview of the utilization of Amec Foster Wheeler’s comprehensive three-dimensional steady-state in-house model for optimization of NOx emission control in a circulating fluidized bed boiler. NOx reactions used in the model are presented along with main methods to affect NOx emission in CFB boilers. The object of the study is a 270 MW coal firing reference unit. Over 35% lower NOx emission was achieved with the new modified design compared to the original design.
