AECOM Process Technologies has a great appreciation for the pressure that operating coal plants are under to maintain compliance with ever-evolving regulations while at the same time remaining competitive with alternative sources of power like natural gas.
We work diligently to identify how services and technologies we offer can best help our clients in achieving these objectives – from optimizing the design and operation of flue gas desulfurization (FGD) processes to reduce operations and maintenance (O&M) costs and/or lower the cost of Effluent Limitation Guidelines (ELG) compliance; to improving plant efficiency, selective catalytic reduction (SCR) operation, and heavy metals and chloride capture with our SBS Injection™ SO3 control process; to partnering with companies to offer a lower-cost alternative to SCR for NOx control. Throughout the past 40 years, our mission remains unchanged—to apply scientific scrutiny, sound engineering, ingenuity, and strong project management in the delivery of value-added process solutions.
With the future of coal-derived power uncertain, AECOM Process Technologies is focused on applying our strengths to emerging technologies in the power sector. With increased drivers for low-carbon sources of power, we are not only involved in research and development associated with carbon capture technologies, but also advancing into the areas of renewable energy and energy storage. With a mindset oriented on the future, we will continue to work diligently to help utilities and power producers generate electricity in a sustainable and responsible manner.
