Leading Companies Tap ADA-ES's Activated Carbon Injection Systems for Compliance With Mercury Regulations

ADA-ES, Inc. ("ADA") (OTC PINK: ADES) today announced that two companies, a leading food products manufacturer and a power plant, have selected ADA's Activated Carbon Injection ("ACI") systems to reduce mercury emissions from their coal-fired boilers so they can comply with Environmental Protection Agency ("EPA") acceptable Industrial Boiler Maximum Achievable Control Technology ("IB MACT") standards and Mercury and Air Toxics Standards ("MATS"). These two clients combined have purchased five ACI systems.
The manufacturer ordered four ACI systems to assist with controlling mercury emissions from the coal-fired industrial boilers used in their sugar manufacturing process. With ADA's ACI system, this manufacturer can be more confident they will remain compliant with IB MACT throughout the year regardless of seasonal temperatures and other factors that may impact mercury emissions levels. The power plant is purchasing a second ACI system to provide flexibility if they need to change sorbents to address operational conditions.
ADA's ACI systems are an established commercial technology for reducing mercury emissions from coal-fired boiler flue gases. ACI systems can be used as a stand-alone technology or as a key part of an integrated solution since they can be easily integrated into a facility's existing plant configuration.
"Understanding the variety of factors that impact compliance, operating cost, and reliability is essential as companies weigh their options to comply with environmental regulations," said Sharon Sjostrom, chief product officer of ADA's parent company Advanced Emissions Solutions, Inc. "Operating coal-fired boilers while controlling emissions is a dynamic challenge, since changes in fuel, equipment operations, reagents and even seasonal variations can impact successful compliance. ADA is delighted to help these clients address compliance challenges in increasingly competitive energy markets through our innovative and cost-effective solutions."
