APCS's Advanced Hybrid Burner Technology provides coal-fired energy plants with the ability to burn multiple fuels after a low-cost retrofit of the existing burners within the furnace. HB3 Technology allows plants to displace 30% to 40% of the coal presently being burned and replace the coal with significantly cleaner Natural Gas or NGLs.
The advantages to the Coal Power Generation industry are both numerous and compelling. The "one-two" punch of APCS's technologies can radically reduce the emission of SOx, NOx, CO2, Mercury and particulates into the atmosphere. This, in turn, allows plants to eliminate the need for expensive SCR systems that routinely cost a billion dollars or more per installation. By burning a gas versus a solid, the plant can reduce the generation of ash, which presents separate environmental challenges.
