Eco Power Solutions, a leading provider of advanced emission control technology, said its COMPLY 2000® multi-pollutant removal system will help US Power Generators adhere to the latest Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations. On July 6, 2011, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) finalized a rule that protects the health of millions of Americans by helping states reduce air pollution and attain clean air standards. This rule, known as the Cross-State Air Pollution Rule (CSAPR), requires 27 states to significantly improve air quality by reducing power plant emissions that contribute to ozone and/or fine particle pollution in other states. This rule replaces the EPA's 2005 Clean Air Interstate Rule (CAIR). 

“It’s not surprising that there is a call for further reductions and we expect this trend to continue,” said Eco Power Solutions CEO, Tom Thompson. “Fortunately we offer coal-fired power generators a solution designed to exceed compliance with these newest standards and others in the years ahead.” 

“The industry-wide implications of the EPA new clean air standards are profound,” said Paul Dickerson, former Chief Operating Officer of the US Department of Energy's Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE). “Eco Power’s multi-pollutant control technology provides utilities with a clear path to exceed these new cross-state air pollution rules with a cost effective strategy.” 

Eco Power Solutions has already been named by the EPA’s proposed new source performance standards and MACT (Maximum Achievable Control Technologies) standards for fossil fuel-fired Electric Generating Units that “offer(s) the potential of reduced compliance costs and improved overall environmental performance,” according to the reference stated on pages 517-18 of the March 16, 2011, proposal. 

Eco Power Solutions’ COMPLY 2000 has consistently achieved unrivalled emission reduction levels of: 

• 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)
• 95 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
• And an average of 25 percent removal of carbon dioxide (CO2)
