New Scrubber Technology from Skyonic Reduces Greenhouse Gas Emissions

AUSTIN, Texas Jan. 27, 2011

Skyonic continues to be at the technological forefront in the push for the reduction of greenhouse gases (GHGs) and other toxic emissions. This month, new regulations imposed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will take effect, designed to decrease the GHGs deemed most detrimental to the environment and human health under the Clean Air Act of 1970. The largest fossil-fuel power plants (utility and refinery sectors) will be affected by the new rules first, in addition to any new construction facilities that will emit more than 100,000 tons of CO2 or GHGs annually. Existing plants that also modify facilities resulting in a 75,000-ton increase in annual emissions will have to meet these guidelines. SkyScraper™ addresses the GHG rules within these new mandates, while also providing a means for coal power plants to comply with other impending EPA rules that place challenging restrictions on the emissions of SOx and NOx, Hg and other pollutants from coal-fired plants.

SkyScraper™ technology helps coal plants eliminate the risks associated with coal ash, such as groundwater pollution, contamination of connected surface waters or generation of toxic vapors. Deployed in combination with Skyonic’s SkyMine® technology, significant potential exists to eliminate the risks associated with coal ash disposal through its environmentally-safe approach to mineralizing smokestack emissions as baking soda, an ideal substance for long-term storage. Research has linked exposure to coal ash components, including arsenic, lead, and chromium and other toxic compounds to cancer and other health problems.
