Alaska Industrial Development and Export Authority Healy Clean Coal Project
In response to a Program Opportunity Notice issued in May 1989 by the Department of Energy (DOE) for the third solicitation of the Clean Coal Technology (CCT) Program, the Alaska Industrial Development and Export Authority (AIDEA) conceived, designed, and proposed the Healy Clean Coal Project (HCCP). The HCCP, a coal-fired power generating facility, would provide the necessary data for evaluating the commercial readiness of two promising technologies for decreasing emissions of sulfur dioxide (SO2), oxides of nitrogen (NOx), and particulate matter (PM). The two technologies to be demonstrated are the TRW Applied Technologies Division entrained combustion system and the Joy Technologies, Inc./Niro Atomizer spray dryer absorber. These technologies have been designed to achieve reduction in emissions of SO2, NOx, and PM while being energy efficient and capable of use in new facilities or as retrofits to existing units. The technologies would be dependent on each other as part of an integrated system.
