Boilers are one of the most common emission sources and range in use from small fire tube boilers to large utility
boilers associated with power plant facilities. The course discusses uses of boilers, heat transfer methods and
fundamentals of operation of modern industrial and utility boilers including those fired by natural gas, biomass,
municipal waste and coal (circulating fluidized bed units). The course also discusses steam turbines and power
generation. This is followed by a detailed discussion on emissions and control techniques such as Low-NOx burners, FGR, staged combustion, SCR and SNCR. New technologies such as Ultra Low-NOx 9 ppm burners, applicable federal and local BACT regulations, permitting requirements and agency inspection procedures and safety concerns are thoroughly discussed.
