Conifer Systems announces that it is the recipient of a recent project order from Hunt, Guillot, & Associates. The order includes a Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) Unit for the abatement of NOx emissions from ammonia process exhaust at Amogy’s new Houston facility.
Conifer’s Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology uses Anhydrous ammonia as the reductant to break down NOx emissions into nitrogen and water with the aid of a catalyst. The design of the combustion vent feed to the SCR can achieve 95% destruction removal efficiency.
The waste gas stream containing NOx emissions is introduced into the system. Anhydrous ammonia is then injected at a controlled rate and mixed with the waste gas stream, with the aid of the catalyst, Anhydrous ammonia then reacts and breaks down NOx emissions into nitrogen and water.
The requirements for this application were quite challenging. The turn-down ratio of 15:1 was higher than usual, meaning that the input process stream could have a highly variable volume, coupled with unusually high temperatures. To address this challenge, our engineering team developed a flexible solution, which enables the required 15:1 design turn-down ratio to be achieved.
Amogy’s new Houston facility is set to be operational in early 2024. It will be used for manufacturing their clean energy solution which uses ammonia as a source of alternative energy. European ship operators looking for cleaner fuel alternatives to diesel are anticipated to be Amogy’s initial customers. According to Amogy’s founder, the engines utilize ammonia as fuel, which is then transformed into hydrogen (Drane, 2023). The fuel cell technology incorporated in the device subsequently turns the hydrogen into electricity, which powers the ship. Learn more about this development on Amogy’s website here.
This is the latest installment in Conifer Systems’ continued involvement in sustainability-conscious endeavors. The company is consistently striving to assist organizations in reaching their stewardship goals namely in carbon-neutral ventures such as alternative energy and renewable natural gas.
