Announcement (attached below) for complete details on evaluation criteria
and application preparation instructions.

Proposals are to include either pilot-scale or field testing-scale of a
pulverized coal-fired or cyclone-fired advanced combustion concept that is
not ready for full-scale demonstration. The expected duration of the
projects should be 1 to 2 years to achieve near-term NOx targets of 0.15
lb/MMBtu by 2005 - 2006 or 2 to 4 years to achieve an intermediate-term
NOx target of 0.10 lb/MMBtu by 2010. These time limits have been
established such that the near term NOx control concepts can initiate
demonstration-scale projects by 2005-2006 and the intermediate-term
projects can be demonstrated on or before 2010. In addition to achieving
one of the two NOx emissions objectives, these technologies are to reduce
energy consumption and balance of plant issues while burning a high
volatile bituminous coal. A reduction in the associated capital and
operating costs needs to be demonstrated such that the levelized cost
savings of at least 25% on a dollar-per-ton of NOx removed is realized
over the current state-of-the-art SCR. This research is to be innovative
when compared to technologies that are currently being implemented and
demonstrated at the commercial-scale. Additionally, the offered projects
need to have successfully completed laboratory/bench-scale or prior
pilot-scale testing and these results are required to be presented in the
proposal to clearly demonstrate the technology's capabilities and cost
benefits. The proposed technologies need to address one of the following
three categories:

- Burners that utilize pre-combustor, oxygen, or other means to enhance
coal pyrolysis and improve the reduction of NOx in staged combustion.

- Combustion concepts for internal staged combustion.

- Layered NOx reduction strategies and control enhancements based on deep
air staging, amine-based injection, reburn, etc.
