 in utility and industrial applications, today announced it was awarded a $4.6 million contract for multiple NOxOUT ULTRA([R]) systems at a single power generation site in China. The systems will generate ammonia reagent in support of large coal-fired electric generating units to be retrofitted with selective catalytic reduction Selective catalytic reduction (SCR) is a means of removing nitrogen oxides, often the most abundant and polluting component in exhaust gases, through a chemical reaction between the exhaust gases, a (reductant) additive, and a catalyst.  (SCR (Sequence Control Register) See program counter. ) systems for nitrogen oxide Noun 1. nitrogen oxide - any of several oxides of nitrogen formed by the action of nitric acid on oxidizable materials; present in car exhausts

John F. Norris Jr., President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "This announcement represents our first major award in China this year and the Company's fourth cumulative award of NOxOUT ULTRA systems in the world's largest market for air pollution control equipment. With industry diligently striving to make further headway in reducing China's air pollution, we believe other near-term opportunities will present themselves for our newly expanded suite of NOx reduction technologies, which now include low NOx burners and overfire air systems, as well as SCR flow modeling, graduated straightening grid technology, and catalyst management services.

 technologies make us a uniquely positioned one-stop technology supplier with the ability to meet China's NOx control requirements without the normal limitations associated with each stand-alone technology."

Mr. Norris concluded, "Equally important, this is the second NOxOUT ULTRA order received from this customer, operator of a nationwide fleet of coal-fired power plants. The need for future measures to reduce NOx emissions from this operator's coal-fired units, either on a retrofit or new construction basis, should afford Fuel Tech the opportunity to secure additional NOxOUT ULTRA orders from this established client."
