In most combustion process atmospheric nitrogen reacts with oxygen in high temperature conditions to produce nitrogen oxides (NOx). Total NOx production is the sum of nitrogen monoxide NO and nitrogen dioxide NO2. The emissions of these gases are controlled through setting of emission limit values (ELVs) for power plants.

In recent years the number of Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) and Selective Non-Catalytic Reduction (SNCR) plants for De-NOx have increased significantly. Continuous analysis of NOx prior to the de-NOx plant is often required to measure the concentration generated by the combustion process. This may be required to provide feed-forward to the Ammonia/Urea injection system and also to allow the effectiveness of the reduction process to be assessed. Continuous analysis of NOx post-reduction is required to allow the effectiveness of the reduction process to be assessed. It may also be beneficial to monitor NH3 slippage at this stage by calculating from the pre and post NOx levels if excess Ammonia/Urea is being applied.
