Fuel Tech is a leading technology company engaged in the worldwide development, commercialization and application of state-of-the-art proprietary technologies for air pollution control, process optimization, combustion efficiency, and advanced engineering services. These technologies enable customers to operate efficiently in a cost-effective and environmentally sustainable manner.
Fuel Tech operates as a fully integrated company with a capital projects business to leverage its Air Pollution Control (APC) technologies, and a specialty chemicals business which builds upon its proprietary FUEL CHEM® processes. Both segments rely heavily on the Company’s unique ability to inject chemicals in combustion units, in precise concentrations and locations, to achieve a desired outcome.
Incorporated in 1987, Fuel Tech has over 175 employees, of which more than 25% of its full-time staff holds advanced degrees. The Company maintains Corporate Headquarters in Warrenville, Illinois, with additional domestic offices in Durham, North Carolina and Stamford, Connecticut. International offices are located in Milan, Italy and Beijing, China. Fuel Tech’s Common Stock is listed on the NASDAQ Stock Market, Inc. under the symbol \"FTEK.\"
As a key participant in the air pollution control and fuel treatment chemicals industries, Fuel Tech is a member of the following organizations: The Institute of Clean Air Companies (ICAC); Council of Industrial Boiler Owners (CIBO); American Coal Council (ACC); and PRB Coal Users\' Group.
The Company’s nitrogen oxide (NOx) reduction technologies include advanced combustion modification techniques including low NOx burners and overfire air systems, along with post-combustion NOx control approaches, including NOxOUT® and HERT™ Selective Non-Catalytic Reduction (SNCR) and Rich Reagent Injection (RRI) systems. Fuel Tech’s Advanced Selective Catalytic Reduction (ASCR) system utilizes the combination of combustion systems and SNCR to provide a cost effective alternative to high capital cost, stand alone conventional SCR systems while providing similar NOx reductions. The ULTRA™ system generates ammonia on-site for SCR systems using safe urea reagent. These technologies have established Fuel Tech as a leader in NOx reduction, with installations on over 580 units worldwide, where coal, fuel oil, natural gas, municipal waste, biomass, and other fuels are utilized.
The Company’s FUEL CHEM® technology revolves around the unique application of chemical injection programs improve the efficiency, reliability, fuel flexibility and environmental status of combustion units by controlling slagging, fouling, corrosion, opacity and acid plume, as well as the formation of sulfur trioxide, ammonium bisulfate, particulate matter (PM2.5), sulfur dioxide (SO2), and carbon dioxide (CO2). Fuel Tech uses its patented TIFI® Targeted In-Furnace Injection™ processes to apply specialty chemical programs to units burning a wide variety of fuels including coal, heavy oil, biomass, and municipal waste. These TIFI® programs incorporate design, modeling, equipment, reagent, and service to provide a complete customized on-site programs designed to improve plant operations and provide a return on investment beyond helping meet and emission regulatory requirements.
Many of Fuel Tech\'s products and services rely heavily on the Company\'s exceptional Computational Fluid Dynamics modeling capabilities, which are enhanced by internally developed, high-end visualization software. These capabilities, coupled with the Company\'s innovative technologies and multi-disciplined team approach, enable Fuel Tech to provide practical solutions to some of our customers\' most challenging problems.
