The contracts are the result of the recent EPA Mercury and Air Toxics Standard (MATS), which requires coal-fired power plants to reduce emissions of mercury and sulfuric, hydrochloric and other acid gases by April 2015. ADA believes that MATS and other emission control regulations could generate a total market in excess of $1 billion for ACI and Dry Sorbent Injection (DSI) systems. The enactment of MATS has recently created a significant increase in ACI and DSI procurement activities, and ADA has been active in its response to this market.
“We are very pleased to be awarded these projects by our customers and proud to provide them with solutions to ensure compliance with the new federal rules,” said President and CEO of ADA, Michael Durham. “The market for equipment to meet the federal MATS rules continues to accelerate and we expect that additional contracts for DSI and ACI systems will be awarded soon.”
