Power Generation in the U.S.
The majority of power plants in the U.S. are more than 40 years old and many are complex in design and operation. For plant operators, a key criterion in choosing a pollution control technology is finding a product that delivers on its ability to reduce pollutants without impairing the plant's ability to continue generating electricity.
Based on its performance record in eight power generating stations, The Chem-Mod™ Solution has been shown not to cause significant operational impact on coal-fired power plants and does not result in adverse maintenance expenditures.
The Chem-Mod™ Solution has been used in conjunction with a range of coal-burning plants employing a variety of boiler types having units that burn several different coal types, and that are equipped with a range of pollution control equipment including scrubbers, Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) units, bag houses and Electrostatic Precipitators (ESP). In all instances, The Chem-Mod™ Solution has been proven to reduce emissions with minimal impact on operations.
Plant age, complexity and size have always factored into determining how to reduce emissions. With The Chem-Mod™ Solution as part of a pollution control strategy, plant operators can benefit from ease of use and a clearer line of sight to emissions reduction goals.

How does the Chem-Mod™ Solution work?
The Chem-Mod™ Solution is a dual sorbent system utilizing both a liquid oxidation agent and a non-carbon-based sorbent to remove mercury and other pollutants from coal-fired power plant air emissions. The liquid agent is applied to coal as it moves through the feeder on its way to the pulverizer. The solid sorbent creates the surface required to capture and hold the oxidized mercury in a ceramic-like aluminosolicate matrix. The sorbents may also be applied directly to the coal as it is conveyed to storage bunkers.
