Komax has long worked with power plants to create a better process to control the pollution that is so often a byproduct of power generation. Understanding exactly how that happens, though, is fairly interesting.
Dry Sorbent Injection, or DSI, is often the most recognized method of pollution control within the power generation industry. It starts when a powdered sorbent is added, via injection, into the flue gas stream, which is the exhaust gas that leaves a power plant. The sorbent reacts with the acid gases leaving plant then the compound is removed downstream by a given filter. It may not sound complex, but in action, it’s fairly fascinating. What’s more, though, is that it has DSI has a pretty significant impact on the pollution levels power plants produce.
There’s always going to be a better technology to help control power plant pollution, and at Komax, we’re working to develop as much of that technology to assist power plants as possible.
