Electric Power Generation
Environmental Compliance for Power Generation
Achieving compliance with air quality rules and regulations is a constant effort. Meeting current and future emissions targets requires diligence, technological understanding and scientific knowledge. We help power utilities plan, design and complete air quality control system projects, including studies, permitting support, system evaluations, process design, equipment specifications, construction management, startup, testing and troubleshooting.
Flue gas desulfurization (FGD): Decades of FGD design, system studies and retrofits have made us a worldwide leader in the field. Our familiarity with key FGD suppliers and processes leads to efficient and economical operations for your existing FGD system. Detailed system evaluations can lead to recommendations to improve removal efficiency, reduce reagent cost and improve operating and maintenance.
Mercury (Hg): We are familiar with activated carbon injection (ACI) system evaluation and design along with co-benefits for various technologies, and evaluation and procurement of mercury continuous emission monitoring (CEM) systems and sorbent traps.
Nitrogen oxide (NOx): Under the Clean Air Interstate Rule (CAIR), NOx emissions have become a significant focus across the utility industry. We have experience with both combustion and post-combustion NOx reduction technologies, including low-NOx burners, selective catalytic reduction (SCR), selective non-catalytic reduction (SNCR) and hybrid systems. We have performed more than 200 NOx reduction and combustion optimization projects. Our staff develops and implements client solutions to combustion side problems on any type of boiler.
