The emissions from sources such as boilers, power plants and process engineering plants are a key aspect of designing modern engineering systems. This is particularly important when emissions of particulate matter, unburned hydrocarbons, carbon monoxides, nitric oxides, sulphur dioxides and many others are regulated by policymakers at the point of exhaust to atmosphere. Increasing pressure is also being imposed by considering the Life-Cycle-Analysis (LCA) of various technologies in the context of determining the total net contribution to atmospheric carbon dioxide emissions.
Our engineers have developed a number of software tools that have enabled our customers to determine the exact composition of the exhaust, these results can then be employed to feed other models of aftertreatment technologies. In many cases, regulations have been met by simply running the technology in an alternative and more efficient operating mode and negating the need for costly aftertreatment technologies. However when appropriate, our advanced aftertreatment tools have been employed to successfully reduce net exhaust gas emissions and suggest improved operating strategies which integrate the operation of the combustion system together with the aftertreatment in the most efficient way possible.
