Advanced dry sorbent systems for air pollution control applications
Chemistry systems on vermiculite substrate for duct injection and easy recovery.
1. "Fluesorbent" SO2 control for retrofit in older small plants. (EPRI tested at Ohio Edison) Byproduct is a licensed agric. soil amendment.
2. "Mercsorbent" Air Toxic control, duct injected works at low temp., is recoverable. Will demo at Ft. Dix. Need Coal fired demo site.
3. "JetSorb" NOx control. First application at jet engine test cells.

(Following text prepared by the company for the Dawnbreaker DOE Commercialization Opportunity Forum," Washington, DC, 10/8-9/96, for small businesses that have received DOE SBIR funding, and who are seeking investors, business partners, or customers.)

"This is a new kind of company: a supplier of multiple advanced sorbent systems for air pollution control applications. Each of the firm's technologies are waste-free, retrofitable, and either low in total cost or low in capital cost - quite a contrast to existing market offerings. Specifically targeted markets are: 1) SO2 control for older, smaller plants, where scrubbers are uneconomic; 2) NOx control for stationary and mobile diesels; and 3) mercury air-toxic control. With six issued and four pending U.S. patents, the company is now scaling up and demonstrating its systems in the field. It is seeking funds and strategic alliances with large and mid-sized engineering or air pollution control firms to assist in marketing and product introduction programs."
