Power generation sites face stringent environmental regulations on water usage and discharge requirements. Fossil fuel based power generation sites have additional challenges in meeting selenium and mercury removal requirements on their flue gas desulfurization (FGD) scrubber systems.
Tighter mercury (Hg), selenium (Se), & total dissolved solids (TDS) discharge limits for coal fired power plants starting 2016
EPA is projecting > $1 billion in capital expenditure
The RDI™ Desalination System offers a cost-effective alternative to conventional technologies for complying with mercury and selenium levels as well as handling and reducing difficult constituents such as calcium sulfate.
