LP Amina delivers superior results with it’s first SNCR pilot at one of the CFE’s plants in Campeche, Mexico
November 2012, Campeche, Mexico. Government owned electric power generation and distribution company Comision Federal de Electricidad (CFE), the major and only authorized power producer in Mexico with total power production of 60GW invited LP Amina to participate in the test to deliver urea based SNCR solution to one of their oil-fired units. Approximately 75% of CFE’s power generation comes through refinery residual oil fired units, and only less than 10% of those units have implemented SNCR NOx control, which CFE eventually plans to implement on most oil fired units. 4 other local and international SNCR technology providers participated in the testing program as well.
LP Amina faced very strict NOx reduction requirements and very specific ammonia slip amounts. The process and all the final results were monitored and measured by LAPEM, CFE’s in-house test company. At the end, LP Amina with it’s proprietary SNCR technology not only delivered superior NOx reduction comparing to the other participants, but also used significantly less urea, which will reduce cost and maintenance for the units. The next steps will be full-scale commercial installation on some of the CFE units. “We are excited to partner with CFE to help them achieve their emissions control objectives using LP Amina’s innovative technology and we look forward to a mutually beneficial relationship” says David Piejak, General Manager, LP Amina US.
