DENVER - Novinda Corp., a leader in non-carbon mercury removal technologies, announced its flagship product - Amended Silicates HgX - received the R&D 100 Award as one of the best technology products introduced in the past year.
The R&D 100 Awards recognize the year's top 100 technology products from industry, academia, and government-sponsored research ranging from chemistry to materials to biomedical breakthroughs.
Novinda's AS-HgX removes mercury from coal-fired power plant emissions, enabling utilities to comply with EPA Mercury and Air Toxic Standards effective April 2015.
A mineral-based product, AS-HgX removes mercury through a chemical reaction, providing economic and environmental advantages unavailable in competing products.
As a non-carbon product, Novinda said AS HgX also leaves fly ash pristine for reuse in manufacturing concrete, eliminating landfill burial of millions of tons of fly ash annually and providing utilities with substantial savings and a valuable revenue stream.
"We are honored to be selected as an R&D 100 Award winner," said Ed Williams, Novinda CEO. "This distinction is an acknowledgement of the environmental and economic advantages of AS-HgX and a tribute to the people who have worked so hard to bring this product to market."
