Powdered Activated Carbon is Not One-Size-Fits-All

PACs are not created equal, nor are they one-size fits all. In choosing the most-effective PAC, each power plant has its own unique and varying set of considerations. These can include: Coal Feedstock, Operating Parameters, Existing and Planned Equipment – Configurations, Rate Structure, Customer Base, Ownership Structure, Corrosion Considerations, Ash Utilization, PAC Handling and other Chemicals, Balance-of-Plant Impacts, Applicable Environmental Regulations: Air, Waste and other Matters

Choosing the optimal PAC for your system will involve identifying and evaluating the factors most critical to your system, and we are here to help.
