U.S. coal-fired power plants to use Cabot mercury control products

Cabot Corp. (NYSE: CBT) signed two new contracts to provide activated carbon products to coal-fired plant customers in five U.S. states.

In order to meet requirements of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)’s Mercury and Air Toxics Standard (MATS), Cabot expects to provide approximately 25 million pounds of activated carbon over the next three years through the company’s DARCO Hg line of products to customers in Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri and Texas. MATS regulations require coal-fired power plants to remove 90 percent of mercury from their emissions by April 2015.
