LOUISVILLE, Ky., Aug. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Eco Power Solutions, the leading provider of advanced multi-pollutant emissions control systems, is offering tours of its Technology Center on Wednesday, August 15th, as part of the 2012 Coal-Gen Conference (August 15-17, 2012).
Opened in 2010, the Technology Center in Louisville gives visitors the chance to see the COMPLY 2000™, the world's most advanced, turnkey multi-pollutant emissions control technology on the market today, operating in real time. This technology provides an all–in–one solution to reduce NOx and SOx emissions by 98 percent; mercury, arsenic, chromium, nickel, other heavy metals and acid gases by more than 95 percent; and CO2 by 30 percent.
"Utilities need to meet increasing clean air standards while maintaining delivery of reliable, cost effective electricity," said Tom Bartolomei, President and CEO of Eco Power Solutions. "The industry executives and media who tour our center will see how Eco Power Solutions' innovative technology is changing the game by eliminating multiple pollutants with an all-in-one-system that is easy to install and operate. They will see how we make coal clean today, at the lowest cost on the market."
Attendees will tour two COMPLY 2000 units, one for coal-fired boilers and one for gas-fired boilers.
The COMPLY 2000 applies gas/vapor and condensing techniques to emission control and proven scrubbing technology. The unit generates a minimum of wastewater by utilizing hydraulic hot-gas-to-water heat recovery technology. Unlike current methods that reduce each of these emissions individually, the COMPLY 2000 eliminates virtually all of these emissions from flue gases concurrently, allowing customers to better control costs.
To achieve the unprecedented multi-pollutant removal levels, the COMPLY 2000 uses an ozone injection process for NOx conversion. A fogging spray is mixed with a hydrogen peroxide solution for SOx conversion that is condensed concurrently with other pollutants over coils to remove all combustion emissions from the exhaust gas stream. This process converts NOx and SOx to nitric and sulfuric acid in the wastewater stream collected at the bottom of the COMPLY 2000 unit. Simultaneously, unburned hydrocarbons and particulate matter are removed during the condensation phase along with carbonic acid resulting from dissolved CO2. This wastewater can then be treated and recycled.
