A brief review of the kinetic formation of oxides of nitrogen is presented. Distinction is made between thermal NOx and fuel nitrogen NOx . The correlation of results is based both on data from literature and field data from Riley Stoker’s Air Pollution Study Program. The emission of NOx is shown to be capable of correlation based on fuel nitrogen, excess air, fuel, burning area heat release, combustion air temperature, furnace wall deposits, and furnace type. The results correlate to a standard deviation of 60 ppm.
