How confident are you that you have the right chemicals?
Meeting state and federal compliance levels for mercury is challenging, especially when you’re managing more than just mercury. Are you adding chemicals to the coal or gas stream? Have you considered the impacts of chemicals on:
We developed a coal additive that enhances mercury removal in plants firing low-halogen fuel. It introduces just enough chemical to treat the mercury without impacting your plant. We’ve treated over 100 million tons of coal without any reported issues.
Our M-Prove™ Additives provide a cost-effective alternative to other halogen-based, coal additives used for enhanced mercury removal. Our product minimizes corrosion risks to cut maintenance and repair costs, enhancing system reliability. M-Prove™ Additives also reduces additional halogen that could leach from your ash, or be present in the wastewater treatment system.
ADA provides solutions for challenging industry problems. In the late 90’s, we discovered that halogen was required to achieve high mercury removal in plants firing sub-bituminous coals. We also know that adding too much halogen to a plant designed to burn low halogen coals can cause costly, unintended impacts to metal that comes in contact with flue gas.
Our patented M-Prove™ Additives was developed to provide the benefits of halogen for mercury control, without the negative impacts. We use a form of halogen that can be applied at very low levels. This essentially eliminates the risk associated with halogen injection while achieving similar mercury control benefits.
Our observations from current users of M-Prove™ Additives show:
M-Prove™ Additives are liquid coal additives that can be applied at various stages of the coal feed process. We understand that adding a chemical to your process requires thoughtful consideration to minimize risks to the plant.
We assist you in evaluating our M-Prove™ Additives through:
We offer simple, low capital options to implement the M-Prove™ Additives. The injection equipment includes a simple, skid-based design with a small footprint.
ADA assists plants by helping them determine the best solution for their unit-specific operations. We evaluate many factors affecting mercury removal to help you determine the optimal control strategy for your plant. Key factors include:
Our team has supported plants evaluating mercury control options since 1990, including conducting mercury control demonstrations at more than 100 plants. We developed mercury control technologies to reduce operating costs and potential balance-of-plant impacts. We have internationally recognized mercury control experts on staff. Put our expertise to work for you to save money and reduce risks of non-compliance.
