Novinda helps author new white paper on characteristics and best practices for injecting powders for mercury control.

Category: Whitepapers | Feb 20, 2015

With the deadline for MATS Compliance quickly approaching, many electric generating units will be installing pollution control systems that utilize powdered sorbents for the removal of mercury. While these applications have been practiced and proven for many years, the number of installations warrants a reminder about best management practices for these powdered materials to facilitate their process integration and safe handling. This paper presents the important characteristics of powders and a basic understanding of how they are applied to handling, transport, and injection. Best management practices are recommended for power plants to safely integrate, operate, and best utilize the applied sorbents and their injection equipment.

Novinda Amended Silicates AS-HgX Determined to be Environmentally Safe for Fly Ash Disposal and Re-Use

Category: Whitepapers | Jan 30, 2014

Novinda Corporation sells a non-carbon reagent for capture of vapor-phase mercury from the flue gas of coal-fired power plants. This material is an option for utilities to meet the EPA MATS requirement for stack mercury emissions beginning in April of 2015. Amended Silicates AS-HgX consists of a bentonite substrate that is amended with a metal sulfide that acts as the reagent to capture mercury from the flue gas as mercuric sulfide, the most stable form of mercury found in nature as the mineral metacinnabar.
