Reducing CO2 and NOx while Increasing Efficiency from Fired Heaters without Selective Catalytic Reduction
1 November 2021

Environmental, economic, and market forces require that fired heaters maintain or improve NOx emissions. XRG Technologies developed the Xceed system for dispersed combustion in fired heaters to address the problems associated with changing fuels, increasing efficiency without increasing NOx, and improving the heat flux profile. The flexible Xceed system can be retrofitted to existing heaters and allows for operation with zero-to-100% dispersed combustion for maximum reliability.

The State of Operations: What the 2020 Research Tell Us
12 October 2021

Operations is the engine that drives financial performance within an organization - and the way companies ran their plants and worksites changed drastically in 2020. Operational Sustainability® (OS) produced a market research survey focused on benchmarking an organization’s existing operational maturity and evaluating the perceived importance of digitization in operations against the significant operational changes due to the coronavirus pandemic and economic challenges. Our research shows that 50% of companies surveyed reported that their operating procedures were either not effective at all, not very effective, or somewhat effective at best in governing day-to-day tasks - which raises concern about their possible contribution to the growing number of process safety incidents. Download our 2020 State of Operations research paper to learn more about the bottom-line impacts of supporting your organization’s workforce through a holistic Conduct of Operations framework, built for mobility.
