As is common knowledge, emissions from thermal power plants contain PM and SOx, and
can cause problems such as acid rain and health damage. Therefore, it is absolutely necessary for
power plants and factories to have environmental equipment for the removal of such air pollutants
(i.e., electrostatic precipitator and desulfurization equipment). In Japan, environmental issues
became serious from the 1960s, and to address these issues, emission regulations were
progressively introduced and laid down stricter standards. The current regulations in effect have
some of the most stringent criteria in the world.
As a pioneer in developing flue gas treatment technologies, Mitsubishi Hitachi Power
Systems, Ltd. (MHPS) has designed and supplied environmental equipment mainly for use at
domestic/overseas thermal power plants, thus taking part in environmental conservation. Recently,
environmental regulations are being reinforced in many countries. We are facing the challenge of
adapting our Japan-developed advanced flue gas treatment technology in ways that suit the
different conditions of flue gas based on the wide range of fuel supply situations and surrounding
environment of relevant countries around the world, to be chosen as highly reliable technology.
