Amended Silicates is the first non-carbon reagent for mercury emissions capture.
Novinda is an advanced air quality technology company known for its non-carbon mercury capture reagent, Amended Silicates®. This mineral-based product removes mercury with chemical reactions rather than through adsorption technologies. Amended Silicates® provides economical, consistent and robust performance across a variety of power-plant configurations and operating conditions while preserving fly ash value. It has exceptional SO3 tolerance, is less corrosive to the balance of the plant, and functions in a broad range of operating temperatures. Amended Silicates® was named 2012 Product of the Year by Environmental Protection Magazine, in the Air Quality and Climate category.
Amended Silicates® HgX is a new and enhanced version of Novinda's reagent for mercury emissions capture. It delivers up to 60 percent greater performance than Novinda's first generation Amended Silicates® product, AS-022, to meet EPA Mercury & Air Toxics Standards (MATS).
Performance results for AS® HgX are based on side-by-side testing at multiple full-scale coal-fired power plants in 2012 and 2013. The product is now commercially available for testing and long-term supply contracts.
The economics for AS® HgX are extraordinary since it is commercially available at the same cost as Novinda's first generation product.
