Many power plants are now operating sorbent injection systems to comply with the recent Mercury and Air Toxics (MATS) Rule. Many of these injection systems began operation earlier this year to meet the April 2016 compliance date. Is it now time to look at optimizing your sorbent injection system?
Sorbent cost (whether for lime, trona, bicarb, activated carbon, etc.) is the most expensive part of operating an injection system. Are your sorbent costs high? Could you achieve compliance at less cost?
If your injection equipment is not operating correctly, you could be paying excessive sorbent costs. Perhaps it is a good time to look at having your system inspected and its operation optimized. Improper sorbent distribution, inaccurate measurement and poor equipment reliability are just some of the reasons that your costs could be excessive.
