Charlotte, N.C., August 25, 2010 — CoaLogix Inc. subsidiary, SCR-Tech, won a five-year contract that establishes provisions for SCR catalyst regeneration for American Electric Power’s fleet of units equipped with selective catalytic reduction systems.
The long-term agreement will enable AEP to optimize its catalyst management program by including regeneration in its catalyst management options. SCR-Tech has already regenerated over 340 SCR catalyst modules for use at two of AEP’s coal-fired power plants.
* Costs about 40 percent less than new
* Has a shorter lead time than new catalyst
* Eliminates the burden of land filling used catalyst
* Reduces the carbon footprint by 66 percent in comparison to new catalyst production
To date, CoaLogix has regenerated over 21,000 modules of catalyst, many during actual power plant outages. In addition, CoaLogix has over 40,000 MW under contract for catalyst management services.
CoaLogix’ NOxAssure program currently consists of over 3,000 modules of plate, honeycomb and corrugated catalyst of various specifications, representing over $30,000,000 of “new value” to coal-fired power plants.
AEP owns nearly 38,000 MW of generating capacity and a nearly 39,000-mile transmission network that includes 765 kilovolt extra-high voltage transmission lines.
