ICAC Releases White Paper on Mercury Reemission
Washington, D.C. The Institute of Clean Air Companies, Inc. (ICAC), the national association of stationary source air pollution control and monitoring technology companies, announces the release of a white paper on mercury re-emission at coal-fired electricity generating units (EGUs). ICAC’s Mercury Control Division developed the white paper entitled Improving Mercury Capture Efficiency of WFGDs by Reducing Mercury Reemissions to assist industry, state permitting and federal air quality officials in understanding the phenomenon and evaluating the technologies available to mitigate it.

Join The Institute of Clean Air Companies
Cleaning The Air We Breathe.
The Institute of Clean Air Companies (ICAC) is a national trade organization that represents suppliers of air pollution monitoring and control systems, equipment, and services for stationary sources in the U.S. and Canada.
Investments in clean air, spurred by industry compliance with air pollution regulations, create real jobs and help provide clean, healthy air. The air pollution control (APC) industry designs, engineers, and constructs projects that require thousands of tons of steel, large quantities of concrete, and specialized equipment—translating to employment for skilled craft laborers such as welders, steam fitters, and electrical workers.Once projects are constructed and become operational, they depend on supplying and preparing reagents and sorbents, as well as other consumables. Nearly all of the materials and equipment can be manufactured and supplied in the United States. Manufacturing and installing this equipment contributes to upstream and downstream employment and economic benefits. For example, during a recent seven-year period, the implementation of CAIR Phase 1 resulted in 200,000 jobs in the APC industry. Learn more about ICAC and becoming a member by clickinghere.
Notable ICAC Accomplishments
Making A Real Difference
- In June, 2014, ICAC released a white paper on mercury re-emission at coal-fired electricity generating units (EGUs). ICAC's Mercury Control Division developed the white paper entitled "Improving Mercury Capture Efficiency of WFGDs by Reducing Mercury Reemissions" to assist industry, state permitting and federal air quality officials in understanding the phenomenon and evaluating the technologies available to mitigate it. To see the white paper, click here.
- In May, 2014, ICAC submitted comments on EPA's proposed GHG New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) for new affected fossil fuel-fired electric generating units (EGUs). Click here to view the comments.
- On November 25, ICAC hosted a Webinar with Thermo Fisher Scienfific on Hg CEMS improvements and updates.
- On November 15, ICAC submitted comments to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) on its proposed standard for combustible dust. At the Mercury Control division meeting at the Air Quality IX conference in October, Sheila Glesmann, Division Co-Chair, brought up the issue and ICAC fast-tracked the formation of a comments workgroup and development of the comments.
- On October 24, Gary Guzy, Deputy Director and General Counsel at CEQ, Franz Hochstrasser, Deputy Associate Director for Public Engagement at CEQ, and Kevin Culligan from EPA’s Office of Air Quality Planning and Standards met with ICAC Board of Directors to review the goals of President Obama’s Climate Action Plan, the recently signed revised GHG NSPS proposal for new power plants, and the outreach effort for the existing unit GHG NSPS that will be proposed in June 2014.
- ICAC submitted comments on the EPA's proposed Effluent Limitations Guidelines and Standards for the Steam Electric Power Generating Point Source Category on September 20, 2013.
- ICAC released 2014 Air Pollution Control and Measurement Equipment Market Forecasts on September 12, 2013.
- On August 23rd, ICAC submitted comments on the EPA's proposed Reconsideration of Certain Startup/Shutdown Issues in the MATS rule. From the administrative process perspective, this proposed rule / reopening of the comment period finishes the reconsideration of the MATS rule that resulted in EPA looking at a few issues, one of which was the change of the new unit mercury limit based on ICAC's petition for reconsideration.
