Jim Staudt speaks at the Bipartisan Policy Center’s first Workshop on Environmental Regulation and Electric System Reliability
Jim Staudt participated in an industry panel at the Bipartisan Policy Center’s workshop on Environmental Regulation and Electric System Reliability on October 22, 2010. The panel discussed the potential impacts of the proposed US EPA regulation on interstate transport of NOx and SO2 (the Transport Rule) and anticipated regulations on emissions of hazardous air pollutants on electric system reliability.

Featured Case Studies:

Mercury Monitors- 
For the recent paper comparing Hg CEMS with sorbent traps presented at the IEA Mercury from Coal Workgroup, click here.

ATP recently examined sorbent trap mercury monitors versus electronic CEMS and showed that the tendency of sorbent traps to indicate somewhat higher is a result of the inclusion of particle-bound mercury in the sorbent trap measurement. ATP also examined the possible benefits of feedback control of ACI systems using mercury CEMS.  In a separate project, ATP examined mercury control options for a Portland Cement kiln, with consideration to specific issues at such kilns.  The results of these studies were presented at a recent McIlvaine Hot Topic Hour.  For the presentation, click here.

Constellation SNCR - ATP presented a paper on the experience with optimization of SNCR systems at Constellation Energy’s C.P. Crane Station that has two 200 MW coal-fired boilers. ATP used a first of its kind approach that significantly reduced reagent (urea) consumption, reduced undesirable ammonia slip and ammonia contamination of fly ash. A key part of the program was a novel method to mount the ammonia monitoring instrument to assure reliable operation over a wide range of operation. The patent-pending mounting system was developed by Jim Staudt and engineers at Tourgee and Associates. Click HERE for a link to this paper and HERE the related presentation.
