    What are the practical techniques to reduce Nox emission from a diesel generator?

    Saad - most recips manufacturers offer hot SCR's to reduce NOx emissions as an option.  These can be catalyst beds with urea or ammonia being introduced prior to the catalyst.  Liquid fuel can be challenging due to contaminants such as Sulfur.  Many base load recips are gas fired and contamination is not an issue for them so be careful with your liquid fuel quality.  You can engage with some exhaust system manufacturers to get specific details - Miratech out of Tulsa, OK is one that has this product.

    Inject urea into the exhaust.  I think they use a catalyst (SCR), but no-catalytic (SNCR) is possible at the right temperature, typically 1800F.
