Description:

NOTE: This is a descriptive overview only of the
Funding Opportunity
Announcement. You must read the entire Funding Opportunity Master
Announcement
(attached below) for additional information, evaluation criteria and
application preparation instructions. Additionally, please note that this

funding opportunity contains three program areas of interest. Applications
can
not be submitted directly under this Master Announcement but must be
submited
under the program area of interest which best fits the majority of the
effort
to be performed. The program areas of interest to which applications can
be
submitted are listed below.

The Department of Energy (DOE), National Energy Technology Laboratory
(NETL)
through its Innovations for Existing Plants (IEP) Program is seeking
applications for cost-shared research and development of advanced
pulverized
coal NOx control technologies at the pilot-scale and field testing-scale.
The
focus of these technologies is to reduce energy consumption and balance of

plant issues and improve the associated capital and operating costs while
burning a high volatile bituminous coal when compared to current
state-of-the-art NOx control technologies. This research is to be
innovative
when compared to technologies that are currently being implemented and
demonstrated at the commercial-scale. Additionally, the offered projects
need
to have successfully completed laboratory/bench-scale or prior pilot-scale

testing and these results are required to clearly demonstrate the
technology's
capabilities and cost benefits. The requested proposals need to address
the
NOx research priorities identified by the joint Department of Energy, the
Electric Power Research Institute, and the Coal Utilization Research
Council
Clean Coal Technology Roadmap:
http://www.netl.doe.gov/coalpower/ccpi/pubs/CCT-Roadmap.pdf

The solicitation addresses the need for strategic research, development,
and
testing of efficient, cost-effective NOx control technologies, processes
and
concepts that are to be retrofitted to existing pulverized coal-fired
electric
utility boilers. This effort is to focus primarily on combustion systems
capable of controlling NOx emissions to a level below 0.15 lbs/million Btu
and
advanced SCR concepts that achieve 90% NOx reductions based on inlet NOx
levels
of 0.10 to 0.40 lbs/million Btu. A levelized cost savings on a
dollar-per-ton
of NOx removed of at least 25% over the current state-of-the-art SCR
should be
demonstrated by these technologies. The proposals should also address the

impact of these advanced technologies on related issues such as unburned
carbon, waterwall wastage, heat transfer surface fouling, sulfur trioxide
generation, and mercury speciation and capture where appropriate.

In conducting this development effort, data is sought to: (1) verify
technology
performance in terms of NOx reduction, (2) determine preliminary
process/equipment and operating costs, (3) quantify potential
balance-of-plant
(BOP) impacts, (4) develop process monitoring/control tools to assist in
management of NOx control equipment, and (5) measure and assess potential
mercury control associated with multiple pollutant or co-control
technology.
