Engineering model of natural gas reburning

Project Details

Description

NOx emissions from fossil fuel and biomass fired combustors are causing concern due to harmful environmental effects such as photochemical smog and acid rain. Reburning, which is a process to limit the emission of NOx by using natural gas as reducing agent, has been found to be an effective process. Current design of gas injection systems however, rely on models for the flow and not the combined effect of flow and chemistry taking place in the jet.
The current project aims at developing an engineering model that provides a detailed description of the reburn chemistry in combination with the flow in the jet-mixing system.
