Emissions Control for Coal-Fired Power Plants
The companies say the partnership combines their respective expertise in air quality control systems and activated carbon-based systems for the removal of mercury, thereby simplifying customer efforts to comply with stringent emission control regulations.
Under the new carbon law, existing coal-burning power plants must cut carbon emissions by 32 percent by 2030, compared to 2005 levels.
The joint Carbonxt-UCC system is applicable to any European or North American power generation project requiring the use of activated carbon injection to control mercury emissions, the companies say.
