DOE Launches NxEAT Tool to Help Industry Assess NOx Emissions
April 30, 2004
DOE's Industrial Technologies Program (ITP) introduces the NOx and Energy Assessment Tool (NxEAT). This new software tool helps plants in the petroleum refining and chemical industries assess and analyze NOx emissions and application of energy efficiency improvements.
Users can inventory emissions from equipment that generates NOx and then compare how various technology applications and efficiency measure affect overall costs and reduction of NOx. By performing "what if" analyses, users can determine optimal and cost effective methods for reducing NOx from systems, such as fired heaters, boilers, gas turbines, and reciprocating engines.
NxEAT is the latest addition to ITP's suite of software tool that help users assess and analyze potential energy and cost savings in industrial energy systems, such as compressed air, motors, process heating, and steam. Download NxEAT and the other toosl from ITP's BestPractices.
NxEAT Rolls Out in Texas on May 4
To launch NxEAT, the tool will be presented at the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) Environmental Trade Fair and Conference, to be held May 3-5, 2004, at the Texas Convention Center, in Austin, Texas. Learn more about the tool and it's capabilities during demonstrations on May 4, in the Trade Fair Exhibit Hall.
The annual TCEQ is Texas' premier environmental educational forum. Attendees will:
- Learn about sustainable community and business approaches
- Hear success stories about performance based EMS's and innovative programs
- Network and gain ideas on developing community partnerships.
