SARASOTA, FL -- (Marketwire) -- 05/15/12 -- Global Technologies Group, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: GTGP) presents summary report dated today for the last series of Mercury emissions testing completed by MSE Technology Applications, Inc., which was conducted to determine if any acid gases, NOX or SOX will be generated using MBS with compressed air in the test system and update on MSE Acquisition.
NOx, SOx and Acid Gas Testing
The same mercury test apparatus was used to run tests that will determine if a mercury laden gas stream that flowed through a reaction column packed with Molecular Bonding System (MBS) or MBS and powdered activated carbon (PAC) would generate any NOx, SOx, or acid gasses in the off gas.
Three tests have been run to date with different treatment mixtures in the reaction column:
- one with a 10% MBS and 90% MBS mixture;
- one with a 7.5% MBS and 92.5% PAC mixture; and
- one with 100% MBS.
The compressed air flow rate for each test was 0.5 Liters/minute (L/m) with approximately 17% moisture content. The two MBS and PAC mixture tests were run for 1 hour and gas samples were collected in tedlar bags every 20 minutes. The 100% MBS test was run for 3 hours and gas samples were collected in tedlar bags every hour.
A Semsidyne Gastec Pump was used to collect gas samples from each of the tedlar bag samples. The tedlar bag samples were tested using Gastec tubes for NOx, SOx, sulfuric and nitric acid and the off gas samples tested showed zero concentration for NOx, SOx, sulfuric and nitric acid. This final testing was to quantify that MBS mixed with Mercury gasses mixed with PAC or stand alone does not increase the acid content of the stack gases. This was an important test for the industry as they will not use any product, system or additive if NOx or SOx is increased.
"The final two part validated Mercury emissions report will be part of the data that will be presented to the Portland Cement Association, EPA and other agencies of the government here in the United States and abroad.
