The chemistry of dry sodium sorbents

Did you know…SOLVAir Select trona and sodium bicarbonate have a wide range of temperatures where they can be efficiently used for acid gas mitigation (from 250-1500oF)? On the other hand, the peak performance of calcium hydroxide (hydrated lime) has narrow temperature windows and generally depends on the water vapor content.  Chemistry has given sodium sorbents properties that make them particularly well-suited for air pollution control…click here for the facts!

Our website Library has a wide range of information about air pollution control, and how SOLVAir products used in Dry Sorbent Injection can work for you. Or call Marilyn Treacy at 303.489.9183 to discuss trona, sodium bicarbonate and DSI in more detail.

Target Pollutants
For over 30 years, SOLVAir Select trona and sodium bicarbonate have helped eliminate or control SO2, SO3 (SOx), HCl and mercury (Hg) control in acid gas emissions. Our understanding of regulatory compliance, expertise in Dry Sorbent Injection, and our ongoing independent field tests help customers meet their compliance goals, both effectively and cost-effectively.

Industries Served
From coal-fired power plants, cement, biomass and energy-from-waste plants to industrial boilers and waste incinerators, SOLVAir trona or sodium bicarbonate in a Dry Sorbent Injection system has effectively helped reduce or eliminate SO2, SO3 and HCl.

SOLVAir® Products
SOLVAir Products, including SOLVAir Select 200 and 150 trona, and Select 300 and 350 sodium bicarbonate, are the direct approach for air pollution control. Whether in wet or dry scrubbers or Dry Sorbent Injection (DSI) systems, these are the products your plant needs to clear the air.

The Responsible Care® Initiative
We are committed to sustainable development through the Responsible Care initiative, a policy adhered to by all Solvay companies, in every country in which Solvay has a presence. The Responsible Care initiative underscores our focus on continuous improvement in the health, safety and environment of our planet.
