The CECEP-led national key R&D program “Technological Research and Engineering Demonstration on Integrated Control of Pollutants from Coal-fired Boilers (SO2, NOx, PM)” successfully passed comprehensive performance evaluation on September 10. 

Part of the first group of national key R&D programs launched after the reform of national science and technology system, the project is led by CECEP Industrial Energy Conservation Co., Ltd. and jointly undertaken by five renowned universities in collaboration with 11 industry-leading enterprises. Since the project kicked off in July 2016, participating research fellows have achieved a series of important results through continuous innovation, including 71 published papers, 29 authorized patents and three software copyrights, and developed China’s first device for integrated control of pollutants from coal-fired boilers. 

The comprehensive performance evaluation of the project was conducted at CECEP headquarters by a group of experts from the office for clean and efficient coal utilization and new energy-saving technologies of the High Technology Research and Development Center under the Ministry of Science and Technology and the Chinese Academy of Sciences. After listening to a report on the project, the experts reviewed the relevant information about the project and watched from distance its demonstration site to assess the project against the requirements stated in National Key Project Specifications. After questioning and discussion, the expert group concluded that the project had completed the research contents as specified, achieved the major research objectives, provided strong support for achieving the special objectives, and explored new technologies for integrated control of coal-fired pollutants with high-temperature dust removal at the core, which have good prospects for promotion and application. The experts unanimously agreed that the project passed the performance evaluation.
