Fuel and Emissions-Related Maintenance and Water Treatment

The quality and type of fuel operating a plant determines the extent and need for environmental controls and equipment, and also significantly impacts wastewater system design. Each requires its own chemicals, specialized cleaning, and analytical determinations based on the need to control:

  • Mercury
  • Sulfur and sulfur oxide
  • Nitrous oxide
  • Carbon monoxide
  • Carbon dioxide
  • Particulate emissions

Fremont Water Systems has the experience beyond water treatment to offer critical, complete maintenance solutions for all fuel types based on our design and operating experience with:

  • Mercury control systems
