NEWTOWN, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Environmental Energy Services Inc. (http://www.eescorp.com)
, a leading provider of fuel treatment programs for utility companies operating oil and coal-fired boilers worldwide, has proven for a second time that the company's application method of a licensed mercury remediation platform will significantly reduce harmful mercury emissions from boiler flue gas streams emitted by coal-fired power plants.
In addition to significant reductions in both elemental and ionic mercury from boiler flue gas streams, Environmental Energy Services (EES) has also successfully demonstrated its method for suppression of elemental mercury re-emission from wet flue gas desulfurization (FGD) systems.
IFS-2C, the mercury emission control technology EES has now tested on two separate boilers operated by major North American utility companies, was developed by Solucorp Industries (OTC: SLUP). EES is a licensee of Solucorp's product.
When applied properly, IFS-2C reduces vapor-phase Hg(O) (elemental mercury) while preventing mercury re-emissions and preserving gypsum purity.
"We know that commercial coal plant operators are looking for a solution to their mercury emissions problems, specifically the re-emission of Hg(O) from wet FGD systems, and we are very close to applying our application process in the first commercial installation of the IFS-2C platform technology," said EES Vice-President for Technical Development Mark Pastore.
EES believes IFS-2C represents an efficient alternative/enhancement to activated carbon (ACI) technology. Mercury remediation at coal plants represents a large potential marketing in the billions of dollars.
About Environmental Energy Services:
core business is with oil-fired utility boilers, though the company has also developed a product platform entitled CoalTreat(TM) to serve coal-fired boilers. Initial demonstrations over the past year have shown CoalTreat(TM) reduces Sox emissions and slagging/fouling, improves heat transfer, and increases plant generation efficiency. EES is aggressively rolling out its solution package to North American coal-fired utilities.
