Document Description
The proposed project includes the instalation of the LM6000 simple-cycle turbine with a Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) system to reduce NOx emissions to nitrogen and water. The SCR process uses a catalyst to facilitate a reaction between the NOx and aqueous ammonia, reducing NOx emissions to nitrogen and water. The existing on-site ammonia tank is to be utilized for the project and the ammonia will be delivered by truck about one every two weeks.
