Solucorp Tests Mercury Emissions Technology

Solucorp Industries, Ltd. announced that its proprietary IFS-2C mercury emission control technology, marketed under the trade name MetalliFix by CoaLogix, its exclusive licensee, was recently demonstrated at a reputable coal-fired testing facility.

According to a Feb. 26 press release, the results of this demonstration were presented at the EUEC Energy and Environment Conference in Phoenix, Ariz., earlier in the month.

One of the testing facility's clients, the San Miguel Electric Cooperative (SMEC), requested the test. A request for proposal was made by SMEC to identify possible technology options that could be used to meet the future U.S. federal mercury reduction requirements for coal-fired energy plants. Solucorp's technology successfully reduced total mercury concentrations by as much as 75 percent while reducing all of the wet scrubber re-emissions. MetalliFix has been previously shown to remove 100 percent of the oxidized mercury and also remove greater than 50 percent of the elemental mercury from the flue gas when added to a scrubber.

"We are encouraged about the results from this demonstration," states Noel E. Spindler, president of Solucorp's Integrated Fixation System subsidiary. "This independent evaluation reaffirms that our mercury emission control technology is a viable, commercial solution to the problems that the coal fired energy industry faces today and going forward."
