When plant operators want to increase production or are planning a plant expansion, the perennial question is: do we have to buy new APC components to make it happen, or can we reuse what we have? Budget always being a factor, the latter is a popular option. Indeed, Boldrocchi has a special team dedicated to retrofit, upgrade and conversion solutions. Boldrocchi specialists will study your system parameters and environmental targets and advise whether reusing existing parts or systems is a possibility.
- Reduced CAPEX (can be a fraction of the price)
- Excellent performance (often nearly the performance of a new system)
- Capacity increase often possible
- Minimal layout and ductwork changes
- Minimal downtime

Complete APC & Noise Protection for Biomass Plant in Italy
Boldrocchi provided complete air pollution control and noise protection solutions for the Lomellina Olevano Electric Power Station, a biomass plant near Milan, Italy. Analyses show complete success: air pollutants have been removed to well under area limits and noise is nearly completely eradicated – the plant’s noise emissions are lower than any other biomass power plant in Italy.
SNCR Used in Cement Kiln to reduce NOX in Italy
Boldrocchi succeeded in obtaining impressive NOX reduction rates by using Selective Non-Catalytic Reduction (SNCR) in a Lepol cement kiln at Italcementi’s Isola delle Femmine plant. We were able to reduce NOX to 350 mg/Nm3, translating into an efficiency of > 60%, rivaling the best abatement possible with SNCR. The injection point was chosen where there was an optimal flue gas temperature window (850°C – 1000°C) to ensure reaction efficiency.
German Cement Plant Gets DeNOX SCR System
Boldrocchi was contracted in 2017 to develop an integrated High-Dust Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) system for a cement kiln at Dyckerhoff’s plant in Deuna, Germany. The goal: reduce NOX to an impressive 180 mg/Nm3 while respecting the customer’s CAPEX and logistics constraints. Boldrocchi designed & manufactured the reactor, dampers, a booster fan, the ammonia dosing system, the catalyst soot blowing system, the reactor preheating system and electrical/automation system.
