The NRECA Cooperative Research Network (CRN) and a coalition of G&Ts are testing technology that offers mercury control, and combinations of technology that may providemulti-pollutant control. The tests at two plants will deliver information on the performanceand optimization of these technologies. Without a multi-pollutant control strategy like CRN'sMPC, upgrades with conventional technologies will cost co-ops $10 billion to $20 billion.

The purpose of the project described herein is to undertake a demonstration of the CRNMPC technology at AEPCO's plant Apache, with a test of EMOtFI1 only at SMEC's San Miguel.Testing at San Miguel would last nearly a week and would include:

• one day of baseline tests

• 11/ day for parametric testing of EMO to determine the optimum injection rate

• A day or two of confirmatory testing and system optimization

The tests at Plant Apache would take approximately 7 days of parametric testing. Testing would include:

• one day of baseline tests

• 1.1/2 day for parametric testing of EMO to determine the optimum injection rate

• 11/2 day for parametric testing of H202 with proprietary additives to maximize NOxreduction

• 1% day of parametric testing to optimize trona

• A day or two of confirmatory testing and system optimization
