Replacing with low NOx burners in a boiler reduces its efficiency slightly. This means we have to burn more fuel to maintain the throughput, leading to increase in CO2 emission. In other words, we are reducing NOx emission at the cost of CO2 emission. Is it right?
Have an insight or suggestion?

Re: Does reducing NOx increase carbon dioxide emissions?3 October 2012 at 11:02amYes, reducing NOx results in a slight increase in CO2, if there is decrease in efficiency in the boiler.
