Research at the University of Central Florida has determined that the injection of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) into a simulated flue gas stream effectively oxidizes NO to NO2, and NO2 to HNO2 and HNO3. These oxides of nitrogen are much more soluble in water than NO, and therefore may be more easily scrubbed from the flue gas in a typical wet scrubber. Oxidation and NOx removal efficiencies of greater than 90% were demonstrated in the laboratory. An economic comparison between the H2O2 injection… CONTINUE READING
