About Fuel Tech
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, and advanced engineering services. These technologies
enable customers to produce both energy and processed materials in a
cost-effective and environmentally sustainable manner.
The Company’s nitrogen oxide (NOx) reduction technologies
include advanced combustion modification techniques - such as Low
NOx Burners and Over-Fire
Air systems - and post-combustion NOx control approaches,
and HERT™ SNCR systems, ASCR™
Advanced Selective Catalytic Reduction systems, NOxOUT-SCR®,
CASCADE®, and I-NOx™ Integrated NOx
Reduction Systems, which utilize various combinations of these systems,
along with the ULTRA™
process for safe ammonia generation. These technologies have established
Fuel Tech as a leader in NOx reduction, with installations on
over 800 units worldwide, where coal, fuel oil, natural gas, municipal
waste, biomass and other fuels are utilized.
Fuel Tech’s technologies for particulate control include Electrostatic
Precipitator (ESP) products and services include ESP Inspection
Services, Performance Modeling, Performance and Efficiency Upgrades,
along with complete turnkey capability for ESP retrofits, with more than
60 major rebuilds on units up to 700 MW. Flue gas conditioning (FGC)
systems include treatment using sulfur trioxide (SO3) and
ammonia (NH3) based conditioning to improve the performance
of ESPs by modifying the properties of the fly ash particle. FGC systems
offer a lower capital cost approach to improving ash particulate capture
versus the alternative of installing larger ESPs or utilizing fabric
filter technology to meet targeted emissions and opacity limits. Fuel
Tech’s particulate control technologies have been installed on more than
125 units worldwide.
The Company’s FUEL
CHEM® technology revolves around the unique application
of chemicals to improve the efficiency, reliability, fuel flexibility
and environmental status of combustion units by controlling slagging,
fouling, corrosion, opacity and operational issues associated with
sulfur trioxide, ammonium bisulfate, particulate matter (PM2.5),
carbon dioxide and NOx. The Company has experience with this
technology, in the form of a customizable FUEL CHEM program, on over 110
combustion units burning a wide variety of fuels including coal, heavy
oil, biomass, and municipal waste.
Fuel Tech also provides a range of combustion optimization services,
including airflow testing, coal flow testing and boiler tuning, as well
as services to help optimize selective catalytic reduction system
performance, including catalyst management services and ammonia
injection grid tuning. In addition, flow corrective devices and physical
and computational modeling services are available to optimize flue gas
distribution and mixing in both power plant and industrial applications.
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.

Eighty percent of a data scientist’s time is spent gathering and cleaning up data, and 80% of all data is unstructured and almost never analyzed. Cognitive computing, in combination with Big Data, is changing the equation by creating data reservoirs and using natural language processing to enable analysis of unstructured data sources. This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's ha...

It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage. What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection.
