Did You Know?
Activated carbon concentrations of as little as 1% in fly ash can render it unusable as a replacement for portland cement.
Amended Silicates vs PAC
Effective Mercury Capture – In sustained, full scale power plant testing, Amended Silicates matched or exceeded powdered activated carbon performance across various coal types and power plant emission control configurations. Amended Silicates exceeded the mercury removal rates required by the EPA.
Cost Competitive - Amended Silicates is price competitive with carbon-based sorbents. In addition, power plants save an additional $35/ton of fly ash (fly ash revenue plus avoidance of landfill costs) by selecting Amended Silicates over PAC.
Concrete Compatible – Amended Silicates is 100% compatible with concrete.
Preserves Fly Ash Sale Value - Amended Silicates preserves the beneficial use value of fly ash as a replacement for portland cement in concrete, thereby eliminating expensive landfill disposal costs while maintaining the sale value of fly ash.
Superior Handling Characteristics - As a non-carbon based product, Amended Silicates is non-flammable and has similar chemical and physical properties to fly ash, making it easy to handle and store.
Amended Silicates offers significant cost savings over powdered activated carbon
in terms of avoided landfill disposal costs and loss of fly ash value.
