Certified Performance Claims

  1. Catalytica Energy Systems’ Xonon™ Cool Combustion technology incorporated in a natural gas-fueled 1.5 megawatt Kawasaki M1A-13X turbine demonstrated with a continuous emissions monitor, emissions of oxides of nitrogen no greater than 2.5 parts per million by volume, measured on a dry basis, corrected to 15 percent O2, on a one hour rolling average at 98 percent or greater operating load of design capacity.

  2. Catalytica Energy Systems’ Xonon™ Cool Combustion technology incorporated in a natural gas-fueled 1.5 megawatt Kawasaki M1A-13X turbine demonstrated carbon monoxide emissions of no greater than 6 parts per million by volume, corrected to 15 percent O2, on a one hour rolling average at 98 percent or greater operating load of design capacity.

Technology Description

Catalytica Energy Systems, Inc. Xonon™ is a flameless catalytic combustion system integrated into a 1.5 Megawatt Kawasaki M1A-13X turbine. The Xonon™ catalyst module replaces the conventional combustor. The Kawasaki M1A-13X turbine with a Xonon™ module emits little NOx and CO because the fuel is combusted completely at a low temperature.

Technology Application

Catalytica Energy Systems, Inc. Xonon™ installed on a 1.5 Megawatt Kawasaki M1A-13X turbine will minimize NOx and CO emissions associated with the operation of a natural gas-fired turbine.
