ALSTOM has announced its participation in the Emissions Control Research
Facility (ECRF) that is now operating at Saskatchewan Powers Poplar
River Station. The ECRF has been recently commissioned to study the
effect of dedicated mercury control technologies on boilers combusting
lignite fuels.

This project aims to study the impact of different sorbents, injection technologies and techniques, air pollution control configurations and operational approaches that can impact mercury removal efficiency. The project will also evaluate new technologies that offer performance enhancement of sorbent injection on lignite-fired utility boilers.

The project is ultimately aimed at the application of commercial technologies for this segment of the market, in response to developing provincial regulations in Canada, as well as developing federal and state regulations in the United States to control air emissions of mercury from coal-fired power plants.

Project participants include ALSTOM, Energy and Environmental Research Center and Saskatchewan Power. However, the project is supported by numerous public and private agencies in both Canada and the United States including: Sustainable Development Canada, US Department of Energy, Electric Power Research Institute, Luscar, CANMET, The North Dakota Industrial Commission, Otter Tail Power Company

Basin Electric Power Cooperative, Minnkota Power Cooperative and Montana-Dakota Utilities.

Initial testing has already commenced at the facility and is expected to continue through the end of 2005.
