Fuel Tech Awarded Air Pollution Control Orders Totaling $2.1 Million

Fuel Tech, Inc. (NASDAQ: FTEK), a technology company providing advanced engineering for the optimization of combustion systems, emissions control and water treatment in utility and industrial applications, today announced the receipt of air pollution control (APC) and Chemical Technologies orders from new and existing customers in Europe, the US and the Caribbean. These awards have an aggregate value of approximately $2.1 million.

Two orders were received from new customers in Europe for Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology, which uses a catalyst along with urea or ammonia as the reagent to provide high levels of nitrogen oxide (NOx) reduction. The first order is for a natural gas and process gas fired heater used at a chemical processing plant. The SCR system includes the catalyst and reactor and will utilize anhydrous ammonia which is already on-site. Equipment delivery is expected in the fourth quarter of 2024. The second order is for a natural gas fired boiler at a municipal solid waste facility. The SCR system includes the catalyst and reactor and an aqueous ammonia reagent delivery system. The scope also includes a catalyst to reduce carbon monoxide emissions from the customer process. Equipment deliveries are expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2025.

A contract was also received from an existing customer in the Caribbean for FUEL CHEM® equipment using our proprietary TIFI® Targeted In-Furnace Injection technology. The existing customer is restarting operations on a fourth heavy oil-fired unit at its metals processing facility where our FUEL CHEM program uses boiler fireside additives to help reduce boiler slagging and corrosion. The chemical injection equipment is expected to be delivered in the second quarter of 2024.

The final contract was received from an existing US customer for upgrades to an existing Selective Non-Catalytic Reduction (SNCR) system for a coal-fired utility unit in the Midwest. Fuel Tech’s SNCR technology is a proven solution for utility and industrial combustion unit owners looking to comply with more stringent NOx control requirements. The SNCR upgrades are being driven by EPA’s Good Neighbor Rule, which requires combustion units with existing NOx reduction equipment to operate at improved efficiency throughout the summer ozone season. Deliveries are expected to be completed by the end of the second quarter of 2024.

Vincent J. Arnone, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “We are pleased to announce these contract awards which represent continued growth using our wide range of product solutions on a global basis. Our long-time customer in the Caribbean continues to rely on our expertise to support their on-going operations. NOx reduction requirements generated by the EPA Good Neighbor Rule could create a number of opportunities for both SNCR and SCR technology over the next several years. Fuel Tech’s range of technologies continues to provide value to support the needs of a wide range of industrial and utility operations.”
