Utility E-Alert Provides Important Weekly News Analysis of Coal Fired Power Developments

Here are some of the headlines in the August 24, and August 31 Utility E-Alerts. These 20 page weekly Alerts provide important analysis and facts for sales and general management of companies supplying combust, flow, and treat products and services.

In the U.S. owners of most of the 225,000 MW of coal fired boilers expected to be in service for the next 30 years are in somewhat of a quandary relative to the Trump roll back of air pollution rules. The Alert provides the latest twists and turns.

There is a very substantial ongoing investment in new coal plants and retrofits of environmental control in Eastern Europe, Turkey, and Asia. The fact that NTPC is selecting dry sorbent injection for four plants is important. It opens the door for some technology other than wet limestone. Japanese and Chinese companies are providing financing and systems for Asian power generators. This gives an edge to CFT suppliers from those two countries.
