Novinda focuses its efforts – product development and professional services – in a distinct and important category: coal burning boilers. Within that singular emphasis, Novinda concentrates on the two most prevalent sectors: power utilities and industrial plants. Our primary goal is simple: to provide plant operators with the products, knowledge and expertise to ensure that their plants operate optimally and within the complex and ever-stricter environmental standards.
Novinda provides key products and professional services to support compliance with environmental regulations for the utility industry. To this end, we now have production capacity for Amended Silicates AS-HgX, soon to be followed with new and improved products for mercury capture to comply with pending EPA MATS regulations. In addition, we are developing advanced products building on our bentonite substrate platform to enhance the performance of other environmental control equipment in the flue gas treatment train of coal-fired power plants. Our new Resistivity Control product will be launched in 2014 to replace the use of SO3 for flue gas conditioning for CS-ESP performance enhancement.
Novinda also offers highly professional services to utility customers to test, analyze, and recommend technology solutions across a wide range environmental emissions issues. Among these are compliance with the 2015 EPA MATS regulations and the latest updates to emissions limits for NOx, SOx, and particulates. Services include planning, testing, project management of subcontractors, procurement of rental instruments and equipment associated with testing, analysis of multiple data streams, and preparation of test reports and recommendations.
Novinda has closely followed the development, revisions and final release of the EPA Boiler MACT, which will require operators of major industrial boilers firing a variety of fuels to comply with more restrictive emissions limits in 2016. Highly effective for just such use, Novinda’s AS-HgX product is available for test at both major sources and area sources. Emission limits for mercury from coal-fired industrial boilers are higher than for coal-fired utility boilers, so lower AS-HgX injection rates are anticipated. Please contact us for more information on the use of Novinda products in industrial boilers.
Novinda’s test group has broad experience in completing test and evaluation projects on industrial boilers to provide data and recommendations for compliance with updated regulations. These experienced personnel are adept with the wide range of instruments and equipment for conducting projects for a wide range of industries. Activities have ranged from documenting compliance to evaluating alternative technologies via temporary installation and operation of competing equipment. Key to successful completion of such trials is a strong working relationship and detailed understanding of requirements and objectives of the project. Novinda Professional Services personnel have earned an outstanding reputation for quality relationships with industrial clients.
