US and Chinese legislation drives FLSmidth's sales of multi-pollution control systems

This year FLSmidth has secured orders with a combined value of approx. 100m DKK within multi-pollution control systems. The growth is mostly driven by environmental legislation in US and China within the iron, steel and cement industries. The orders provide a strong platform for future growth for FLSmidth's multi-pollutant control systems.

Gas suspension absorbers help producers adhere to NESHAP regulations

The National Emissions Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) legislation for US cement plants imposes the strictest emission limits in the world. Among other components, NESHAP intends to impose limits for the emission of mercury that are 90 % below present World Bank limits.

FLSmidth's tests of the gas suspension absorber (GSA) at Norcem Brevik, Norway (HeidelbergCement) have confirmed that the equipment can adhere to the proposed NESHAP emission requirements. This implies great potential for FLSmidth's gas suspension absorbers  on the potential US market arising out of NESHAP.

Applying the GSA in the iron and steel industries

The proven capabilities of the GSA in removing mercury also affected the selection of technology for customers in the iron and steel industries.

FLSmidth recently secured an order with Essar Steel in USA for delivery of two GSAs (including equipment for active carbon injection for increased mercury removal) for their new pelletizer plant to be built at the Nashwauk, Minnesota, US site.

Furthermore, FLSmidth has secured an order for pre-engineering of two GSAs to US Steel at their Keetac plant. For both orders, the ability to substantiate and guarantee the potential for acid gas and mercury removal together with our references were key to the clients.

Breakthrough on the Chinese market

The Chinese government has in its newest 5-year plans committed to applying desulphurization to the around 300 sinter strands in China, and recently we secured an order for a sinter strand at Huangshi Xin Xing Pipe Co Ltd.

Breakthrough on the Chinese market

In January this year, FLSmidth signed a contract with Siam Cement's Thunsong plant in Thailand for the delivery of three gas suspension absorbers for three of the plant's production lines.

This will be the third reference for the GSA within the cement market. The second reference is the GSA at Norcem Brevik, Norway (HeidelbergCement) where the performance test was recently passed. This installation fully confirmed the ability of the GSA to adhere to strict environmental requirements for removal of acid gases.

These GSA orders all contribute to FLSmidth's ambition to increase sales of multi-pollution control systems within the cement industry as well as within pelletizers and sinter strands within the iron and steel industries. The recent orders form a strong platform for future growth.
