Low NOx Combustion Technologies Analysis for Municipal Solid Waste Incineration

Incineration is becoming the most important solution for municipal solid waste (MSW) disposal in China, NOx is one of the main pollutants released during incineration of municipal solid waste, NOx limit values for waste incinera- tion plants are strict all over the world. Fuel NOx dominates in MSW incinerators, NOx can be controlled by combustion buildup, as for MSW, burnout and issues including dixon should also be considered when a low NOx combustion technology is developed. From this point of view, briefs the combustion character in a grate incinerator, analyses state-of-the-art low NOx combustion technologies provided by some incinerator manufacturers.
