EPA, NALCO FUEL TECH COMPLETE JOINT R&D WORK ON NOx REDUCTION

 NAPERVILLE, Ill., Oct. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Nalco Fuel Tech and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Air and Energy Engineering Research Laboratory have completed a cooperative research contract on optimization of advanced control methods for reducing nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions from combustion sources.
 Results confirmed that cascading control, which combines urea- based selective non-catalytic reduction (SNCR) with selective catalytic reduction (SCR), can reduce NOx by more than 90 percent with less than three parts per million ammonia slip.
 NFT recently was awarded three U.S. patents covering many aspects of combining NOx reduction technologies. The company already holds more than 25 patents on the NOxOUTR Process in the United States and abroad.
 Under the Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA), the EPA provided program management, combustion test facilities and technical support. NFT provided its NOxMASTERR Cascade technology, NOx reducing chemical reagents, technical support and financial funding.
 Work was conducted at the EPA's AEERL facilities in Research Triangle Park, Durham, N.C. The CRADA provided for commercialization rights to be retained by NFT.
 NFT is a joint venture between Fuel-Tech N.V. (NASDAQ: FTEKF) and Nalco Chemical Company (NYSE: NLC) and is a leader in air pollution control technologies for industrial and utility combustion sources.
