Description:  The University of Cincinnati Department of Chemical Engineering in cooperation with the Department of Environmental Engineering has developed a novel improvement for flue gas electrostatic precipitators. The resulting modification removes particulate material while recovering heat and maintaining conditions to prevent corrosion in the system. Up to 98% removal of acidic gas components is anticipated. The new technology offers the following advantages over existing flue gas cleaning systems:
  • low gas phase pressure drop
  • low liquid pumping cost
  • notable heat recovery
  • immense decrease in water usage
    We believe that all of these unique improvements will greatly reduce operational costs while increasing removal efficiency of particulate matter and sulfur and nitric oxides. We have submitted a patent application and strongly believe this invention has significant commercial potential. We are seeking a company to help develop and commercialize this technology.
