Alteo has reduced NOx emissions at its Gardanne plant by more than 50% in 7 years

In an effort to further reduce nitrogen oxide emissions , Alteo recently ordered 8 PILLARD-type natural gas burners PILLARD LONOxFLAM G2 for its boilers n ° 2 and n ° 3 in 2 stages.

The first step, which consisted in the installation and commissioning of 4 burners on boiler no. 2 at the site in mid-2018 was a success with a NOx level of less than 100 mg / Nm3 at 3% O2sec.

Building on this success, the customer asked Fives Pillard to deliver 4 additional PILLARD LONOxFLAM G2 burners with a total capacity of 62 MW for its No. 3 boiler. The 4 burners, implemented end 2018, generate a capacity of 62 MW for a steam production of 80 t / h with NOx emissions also lower than 100 mg / Nm3 at 3% O2sec, to the entire satisfaction of the customer.
