US-based energy industry services provider NAES announced that its subsidiary NAES Power Contractors has secured a contract from a firm located in Midwest to install air quality control systems at its coal-fired plant.

Under the contract, the company will install a new Dry Sorbent Injection (DSI) system and an Activated Carbon Injection (ACI) system at a coal-fired generating station.
The air quality control systems are being installed to meet the new standards of mercury and air toxics standards (MATS) established by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

Under the National Maintenance Agreement (NMA), NAES Power Contractors will set up the DSI and ACI systems at the power generation plant.

NAES Power Contractors president Glen Canavera said the company has secured the important project with a new client.

"In addition to expanding our geographic footprint, the technology will be a key factor in enabling select coal facilities to remain viable," Canavera added.

"The EPA's new Mercury and Air Toxics Standards (MATS), establishes the first ever national limits on mercury and other toxic emissions from power plants."

The ACI system help reduce emission of pollutants like mercury, arsenic, chromium, and nickel, whereas the DSI system uses sodium bicarbonate for SO2 control, with removal percentages that rival the performance of scrubbers.

The project is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2013.
