China has spent more on equipment to reduce NOx from power plants in the last two years than any other country, but it has a long way to go. The installed capacity of deNOx systems at the end of 2010 was 58,000 MW. This means that about 10 percent of the total coal-fired capacity of 600,000 MW is fitted with deNOx equipment. By contrast, two-thirds of the capacity is fitted with scrubbers to remove acid gases such as SO2. McIlvaine Company forecasts the market for deNOx systems in World NOx Control Markets and tracks each individual Chinese air pollution control project in Chinese Utility Plans.

There are 200 power boilers at 100 plants in China which have installed Selective Catalytic Reduction systems (SCR). These power plants are mainly located in the population centers of Beijing, Guangdong, Zhejiang, Jiangsu, Shanghai, Fujian, Shanxi, etc. Only four power plants have installed the less efficient but cheaper Selective Non-Catalytic Reduction (SNCR) systems. All boilers installed since 2003 are equipped with Low NOx burners.
