BASF will introduce Mercury Sorbent HX™, a cost-effective mercury sorbent solution that helps electric companies preserve fly ash for sale to the concrete industry, at EUEC 2013, North America’s largest energy, utility and environment conference, Jan. 28-30 in Phoenix, Arizona.
Electric utilities that operate coal-fired boilers need to meet regulatory requirements and contain costs. This means finding cost-effective solutions for controlling mercury emissions and preserving the quality of fly ash they sell to concrete manufacturers.
“BASF understands the needs of electrical utilities and has spent many years researching solutions,” said Fabien Rioult, Business Development Manager, BASF. “Mercury Sorbent HX enables high performance of mercury removal and preserves fly ash quality for sale as an admixture to the concrete industry.”
Mercury Sorbent HX is a brominated mineral sorbent enabling a low- carbon solution for mercury emissions compliance.
BASF will showcase the product at booth 622 and highlight the key benefits that BASF and this product bring to the power industry:
- Reliable mercury capture, which helps coal-fired power plants meet and exceed future state and federal regulations .
- Preservation of fly ash sales, enabling utilities to generate income and avoid disposal costs.
- Cost effectiveness through competitive pricing.
- Reliable supply.
In addition its exhibit, BASF will present a breakout session on this topic at EUEC on Tuesday, Jan. 29, from 10 a.m. to noon, titled “ BASF – Mercury Sorbents – Update on mineral-based technologies for mercury capture in coal-fired power plants.”
