Nalco Mobotec Inc. signed a contract with Portland General Electric Co. for mercury emission control at PGE's Boardman Station in Boardman, Ore. The three-year agreement will help PGE reduce mercury emissions to comply with Oregon's mercury emissions regulations, which take effect July 1, 2012.

Used in conjunction with activated carbon, Nalco's "Mercontrol" system will help the utility achieve the required reduction in mercury emissions. Oregon regulations mandate mercury control beginning in 2012. PGE will start treating its emissions in 2011. Nalco Mobotec will deliver its product to the Boardman Station beginning in June 2011.
