Abstract Over the last 4 years, development of a coal-fueled, diesel engine for stationary power applications has been conducted by the team of Arthur D. Little, Cooper Bessemer, AMBAC, PSI Technology Company (pSIT), Otisca Industries, Ltd., AMAX R&D, CQ, Inc., and Energy International. This development effort will soon culminate in a 100-h continuous, proof-of-concept demonstration of a 1.8 MW six-cylinder engine at CooperBessemer in Mt. Vernon, Ohio. As part of the development work, over 650 hr of testing have been conducted on this engine and a single-cylinder laboratory research engine. These tests have shown that coal-fueled diesel operation is feasible with (a) economical coal cleaning and slurrying technology; (b) wear resistant engine components involving ceramic materials; and (c) an effective emission control system. This paper discusses the features and performance of the emissions control system. Initial results are presented for the selective catalytic reduction process that controls NOx and the sodium based sorbent injection process that controls SOx.
