CoaLogix partners on coal-fired emissions control technology

8 February 2010– CoaLogix Tech LLC, a unit of CoaLogix, signed an agreement with FLSmidth to provide sulfur trioxide (SO3) and mercury remediation technologies for the coal-fired power industry.

Under terms of the agreement, CoaLogix Tech becomes the exclusive partner for selling and executing FLSmidth’s SO3 reduction technology into the power generation market. In addition to marketing existing lines, CoaLogix Tech and FLSmidth will jointly design standardized products, which will be marketed to energy producers by the CoaLogix Tech sales force. The agreement also brings FLSmidth’s existing technology for mercury remediation to CoaLogix Tech.

When burning coal, sulfur is converted into SO2 and SO3. SO2 is captured by environmental systems in the plant while the SO3 tends to be emitted into the environment. Mercury from coal-fired plants is also not federally regulated.
