Re: Chlorine gas at Power Plants



Jeff,

In Pinellas County, Florida, we use chloramines to disinfect drinking
water and the City of Clearwater was using chlorine dioxide the last I
checked.  If you would like more information, I can do further
research...

Please post the following:

I am seeking information on safer alternatives to chlorine gas and
anhydrous ammonia at power plants. I am looking at safer alternatives
that reduce or eliminate the potential for a sudden Bhopal type toxic
cloud, as well as routine environmental harm.

Of primary interest: power plants use chlorine gas to prevent algae
and
slime in cooling towers and to prevent zebra mussels and clams in
water
pipes.  Alternatives may include chlorine bleach, bromine, pulsed
electric power, UV light, and fouling release coatings.

Also: power plants use anhydrous ammonia in selective catalytic
reduction pollution equipment to control NOx emissions.  Alternatives
may include aqueous ammonia or urea, and I am interested in learning
about other technologies.

What are the major commercial technologies?  
What are emerging technologies in the initial stages of
commercialization? What papers (or people) describe these various
technologies?
