Calgon Carbon unveils FLUEPAC products to control mercury emissions


By
Greentech Lead Team
: Calgon Carbon Corporation, a provider of services and
solutions for making water and air safer and cleaner, announced the launch of
an advanced FLUEPAC line of products to control an increasing environmental
concern, mercury emissions in the coal-fired electric power generation market.

The
FLUEPAC product line includes FLUEPAC MC+ ULTRA, FLUEPAC MC MAXX and FLUEPAC
ST.

These
products can reduce carbon injection rates by 50 to 70 percent below that of standard products, while
exceeding the mercury removal requirements recently established by the
Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Mercury and Air Toxics Standards
(MATS).

“By
choosing our advanced FLUEPAC products over standard activated carbons,
customers have saved as much as $2 million in total treatment costs. We look
forward to further demonstrating our commitment to this market through
continued investment in product development and manufacturing capacity
expansions that are aligned with the needs of the market,” said Robert O’Brien,
executive vice president and chief operating officer of Calgon Carbon.

FLUEPAC
products can reduce activated carbon injection rates, thereby lowering the
overall treatment costs associated with achieving mercury emission objectives.
Additional savings result from fewer carbon deliveries, less wear on systems
and a decrease in the injection system size.

The
advanced FLUEPAC line also decreases the particulate load on electrostatic
precipitators (ESPs) and baghouses, which minimizes the risk of exceeding
particulate emission limits, and a reduction in the amount of activated carbon
in the fly ash, which increases its potential value for use in concrete
production and reduces ash disposal costs.

The
most versatile and advanced of the products, FLUEPAC ST will reduce the negative
impact of sulfur trioxide (SO3) on standard carbon performance. FLUEPAC ST can
deliver 90 percent mercury capture in SO3 concentrations up to 15 parts
per million (ppm) at injection rates less than 10 pounds per million actual
cubic feet of flue gas (lbs/MMACF).

Recently,
Calgon Carbon Corporation announced that its subsidiary, Hyde Marine, will
supply six
Hyde GUARDIAN Ballast Water Treatment (BWT) Systems for two LR2 Aframax tankers
for ship owner OSG.
