SINOx from Siemens drops industrial NOx

In response to a growing demand for NOx emission reductions for small industrial combustion facilities, engine-based cogeneration plants and diesel generators, Siemens Power Generation Group has developed SINOx, a special exhaust cleaning system which is reported to reducing NOx by up to 95 percent.

The SINOx system uses a ceramic honeycomb-type catalyst, a storage and dosing device for the reactant and a control system. Small quantities of urea are admixed with the exhaust which acts as the reactant, which then converting NOx to harmless nitrogen and water.
