  • Toxecon Retrofit for Mercury and Multi-Pollutant Control - WE Energies, based in Milwaukee, WI, will design, install, operate, and evaluate the TOXECONTM process as integrated mercury, particulate matter, SO2, and NOx emissions control system for application on coal-fired power generation systems. Wisconsin Electric (WE Energies) will be assisted by team members including ADA-ES, who will provide program management support and design and specifications for mercury control and monitoring, Cummins & Barnard, who will provide architect and engineering services and construction management, Environmental Elements Corporation, who will provide baghouse design and installation support, and EPRI, the developer of TOXECONTM, who will be a technical advisor to the project. The project value is $52.98 million with DOE providing $24.86 million.

  • Cobalt Fischer-Tropsch Catalysts - Researchers at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, WI, will use state-of-the-art computational chemistry methods and experiments to develop and validate a detailed microkinetics model describing the rates of the important elementary steps that occur during Fischer-Tropsch synthesis on the surface of a cobalt catalyst. DOE is fully funding this project at $645,000.

  • Ultra-Low Temperature Catalysts - Researchers at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, WI, will use state-of-the-art computational chemistry methods for identifying novel bimetallic near surface alloy catalysts for the ultra-low temperature Water Gas Shift reaction. The main target of the research is to identify alloys that are stable in the presence of oxygen, and activate water easier than copper, which is the current industrial catalyst. DOE is contributing $50,000 to this $59,000 project.
