Cabot awarded $5M contract for Norit activated car

Cabot Corporation’s Purification Solutions Segment has received a contract to provide Norit DARCO® Hg-LH EXTRA activated carbon to one of the largest power generating facilities in New England. The contract is valued at up to $5 million and will allow the major Northeast utility to meet state regulations for mercury emissions.
Mercury is a natural element that is released into boiler flue gas when coal is burned. Many U.S. states have established regulations and standards to reduce mercury emissions as it can create health issues such as mercury contamination of consumable fish.
“For over 20 years we have leveraged our deep mercury removal expertise to deliver new and innovative products for the power generation industry,” said vice president and general manager, Global Emission Control Technologies, Cabot Purification Solutions, Bart Kalkstein. “This new contract validates the effectiveness of our newest state-of-the-art activated carbon products to address the latest challenges in mercury removal today and in the future.”
Norit, acquired by Cabot Corporation in July 2012, is recognized as the world’s technology leader in mercury removal from flue gas. Norit DARCO Hg-LH EXTRA is the newest product in the Norit DARCO Hg family of mercury control products. It is a premium impregnated sorbent resulting from Norit’s ongoing research and development efforts to provide the coal fired utility industry the lowest total cost of mercury compliance.
