Subject: Invitation to Power Plant Mercury Control Tutorial & Open House

Dear Environmentalist Community Member:

We in the air pollution control field have made great strides over the past twelve months in reducing the cost and increasing the performance of power-plant mercury control.  As a member of the environmentalist community interested in mercury control, we believe that you should have the very best and latest information when considering your future lobbying strategies.

Sorbent Technologies Corporation is planning to become one of the major utility mercury control suppliers over the coming years.  We recently completed construction of the industry’s first dedicated utility mercury sorbent production plant, which is capable – today – of supplying a number of power plants on a day-to-day, continuous basis.  And additional supply capacity can be quickly added as demand increases.  Moreover, we will guarantee sorbent performance levels at individual plants after simple duct-injection trials.  We are beginning to schedule these now for next year with major utilities.

We are currently achieving over 90% mercury removal very inexpensively at Detroit Edison’s St. Clair Plant, which fires subbituminous coal with only an ESP, something quite unprecedented before our “B-PAC” technology became available.  But we have seen similar results at every plant we have been at.  Please review the updated Attachments and feel free to forward them to whomever you believe could use the information.  We will be happy to answer any questions that these materials may generate.

I am writing to you today specifically to invite you to a Mercury Emission Control Open House at the St. Clair Plant on Tuesday, October 26th, sponsored by Detroit Edison, the U.S. Dept. of Energy, and Sorbent Technologies Corporation.  Sorbent Technologies has been continuously injecting its B-PAC mercury sorbent at this plant, north of Detroit, for almost a month now.  Come and see for yourself how simple and inexpensive 90+% mercury removal can be.  If you wish to make your own way to the event, we will be assembling at Detroit Edison’s Belle River Power Plant Training Center at 4505 King Rd., China Township, Michigan at 10.a.m.  (See maps in an Attachment.)

In addition, on Monday evening, October 25th from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m., the night before, Sorbent Technologies is also offering a free, optional Power Plant Mercury Tutorial at the Crowne Plaza Hotel - Detroit Metro Airport.  (8000 Merriman Rd., phone: (734) 729-2600, with a shuttle from the airport.)  The tutorial will not just cover our company’s technology, but will provide a technical overview of the power plant mercury problem and outline various strategies, technological options, and their relative costs.  A bus will leave the Crowne Plaza on Tuesday morning at 8 a.m. for the Open House.

You can fly into Detroit on the afternoon of the 25th and stay at the Crowne Plaza for a Group Rate of $105 to attend both events.  You are required to register for the Open House and optional tutorial with Joy Sutherland of Sorbent Technologies at (330) 425-2354 or JSutherland@SorbentTechnologies.com.   

And please pass this invitation along to any others that you feel may be interested.  Thanks.
