Eco Power technology surpasses new EPA coal-fired plant pollution regulations

Eco Power Solutions, developer of the world’s only multi-pollutant emission control and energy recovery system, announced its COMPLY 2000™ technology has consistently achieved greater than 95 percent removal levels on six key pollutant categories—surpassing the new Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) standards and Boiler MACT (Maximum Achievable Control Technologies) air pollutant regulations.

These results confirm that the 400-plus coal-fired plants across the United States, responsible for providing more than half the nation’s electricity, now have a commercially proven, scalable and cost-effective multi-pollutant control system option that far exceeds results produced by conventional scrubber technology of the past. 

“Eco Power Solutions’ emission control results provide power generators and industrial plant operators with considerable economic incentives to comply with more aggressive pollutant regulations put forth by the EPA,” said Konkana Khaund, Sr. Analyst and Program Manager, Environment & Building Technologies, Frost & Sullivan. “Forward-thinking utilities and industrials can get a jumpstart on emission control compliance well ahead of 2015 deadlines with the entry of solutions such as the COMPLY 2000 into the emission control technology arena.” 

Eco Power’s results are the culmination of a comprehensive six-month review process to determine combustion emission removal levels by a commercial-scale version of the company’s ozone-based COMPLY 2000 system that produces clean, reliable power from a variety of energy sources including coal, oil and natural gas-fired boilers. 

Using industry-standard bituminous coal containing a three percent sulfur concentration as the feedstock source for its emission control testing of raw flue gas without the aid of scrubbers, Eco Power Solutions COMPLY 2000 achieved the following results: 

• 99 percent removal levels for sulfur oxides including sulfur dioxide (SO2) and sulfur trioxide (SO3)
• 95 percent removal of nitric oxide (NO) and nitrogen dioxide (NO2)
• 99 percent removal of mercury (Hg)
• 99 percent removal of 2.5 and 10-micron particulate matter
• 99 percent removal of halogens including fluoride, chlorine and bromide and others
• 99 percent removal of heavy metals including arsenic, cadmium, chromium and others
• An average of 20 percent removal of carbon dioxide (CO2) 

“The industry-wide implications of our emission control results are profound,” said Tom Thompson, CEO of Eco Power Solutions. “Our commercial testing results for multi-pollutant removal provide utilities and the industrial sector with compelling proof points that signify a win-win for all—a safe and readily available source of electricity, a greener and healthier environment and substantial economic benefits for our clients.”
