E.ON Power Technology in the UK recently reported on tests undertaken on Green Plus, a liquid fuel catalyst that is claimed to reduce harmful emissions, in a test boiler of a coal-fired power plant. Green Plus is a sister company to the Biofriendly Corporation in the US. The purpose of the test was to determine how the fuel catalyst’s ability to improve combustion would affect the efficiency of the power plant. The report stated: ‘The Green Plus catalyst showed benefits in LOI (loss on ignition) carbon burnout, with no increase in NOx (nitrogen oxides) and, in some cases, a small NOx reduction.’ LOI defines the amount of unburned carbon in fly ash. A lower LOI represents less carbon residue in the ash, which means the boiler is operating more efficiently, with lower emissions. During the test, Green Plus lowered LOI by at least 20%, according to the report.
