Air Pollution Control

The EPA developed the Maximum Achievable Control Technology Standards (MACT Standards) to reduce the effects of Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAPs) generated by industry. The standards that were developed through this MACT approach became known as the National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAPs). The purpose of these NESHAPs is to protect the public health by reducing discharges of HAPs from major air emission sources.


Magnesia-based chemistries are employed regularly for the treatment of acid gas emissions in both manufacturing processes and at utilities. Effective at neutralizing acidity at the source, our products effectively treat to MACT regulatory standards, and in addition help to streamline the treatment process by way of in-line addition. 



Environmental regulations require coal and gas-fired power plants to sequester SOx gas particles as they form, and to continually improve SOgas removal processes and efficiencies.  Such processes are conducted through filter membranes and chemical scrubber processes. Caustic soda is the most commonly-used chemical for pH control in sulfur dioxide (SO2) scrubbers, but it also tends to fluctuate in price and can be hazardous for employees to handle. Alternatively, magnesia-based products can help to reduce chemical usage, as well as the cost of compliance in a safer way for the environment and people.  


Hydrochloric Acid (HCl) Treatment

The generation of acid gas by industry has necessitated in-line treatment processes to reduce environmental impact. Our customized products, when added to wet scrubbing systems prior to the stack, effectively reduces emissions.
