The MT86 insertion type multipoint mass flow meter combines FCI's highly reliable thermal dispersion, no-moving parts flow element design with up to 16 flow sensing points while operating over a wide temperature range up to 850° F [454° C]. The electronics features continuous built-in testing and calibration adjustment to prevent signal drift.
SOLVAir sodium bicarbonate is manufactured at Solvay Chemicals’ Green River, Wyoming plant. For many years, sodium bicarbonate has been used to reduce acid gas stack emissions in industries including coal-fired power plants and waste incinerators. SOLVAir Select 300 sodium bicarbonate provides an alternative approach for dry sorbent injection applications. It reacts very rapidly with acid gases and is able to achieve very high levels of removal of these pollutants when used in a properly designed DSI system.

The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and industry groups including cement producers have failed to settle a permit dispute that is testing whether the agency has the authority to require operators of hazardous waste combustion units to conduct risk assessments that can be used to strengthen emissions limits for mercury and other pollutants when renewing the facilities' existing waste and air permits. Negotiations stalled during a meeting in November 2013 between EPA lawyers and cement kiln operators at EPA's Region V offices, according to an 8 January 2014 status report the parties filed with the Environmental Appeals Board (EAB). Litigation will continue on 20 February 2014.
