To provide healthy solutions for ecological scourges like pollution of the air, water and soil and for modern lifestyle ailments, which are slowly but steadily degrading life on planet Earth.

A UNIQUE COMPOUND DEVELOPED BY ECOHEALTH PRODUCTS PVT LTD TO CONTAIN SULFUR EMISSIONS IN POWER PLANTS

The cost of power generation to the environment is huge. A fossil-fuel power station is a power station that burns fossil fuels such as coal, natural gas or petroleum (oil) to produce electricity. In India, such plants provide most of the electrical energy used.

The flue gas from combustion of the fossil fuels is discharged to the air; this contains carbon dioxide and water vapour, as well as other substances such as nitrogen, nitrogen oxides, sulfur oxides, and (in the case of coal-fired plants) fly ash, mercury and traces of other metals.

As can be seen, after Carbon dioxide, the biggest pollutant from thermal power plants is Sulfur dioxide.

Environmental Effects: Sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides are the major precursors of acid rain, which has acidified soils, lakes and streams, accelerated corrosion of buildings and monuments, and reduced visibility. Sulfur dioxide also is a major precursor of fine particulate soot, which poses a significant health threat.

Sources: Combustion of fuel containing sulfur -- mostly coal and oil. Also produced during metal smelting and other industrial processes.

Health Effects: High concentrations of sulfur dioxide (SO2) can result in breathing problems with asthmatic children and adults who are active outdoors. Short-term exposure has been linked to wheezing, chest tightness and shortness of breath. Other effects associated with longer-term exposure to sulfur dioxide, in conjunction with high levels of particulate soot, include respiratory illness, alterations in the lungs' defenses and aggravation of existing cardiovascular disease.

Current scientific evidence links short-term exposures to SO2, ranging from 5 minutes to 24 hours, with an array of adverse respiratory effects including broncho-constriction and increased asthma symptoms. These effects are particularly important for asthmatics at elevated ventilation rates (e.g., while exercising or playing.)

Studies also show a connection between short-term exposure and increased visits to emergency departments and hospital admissions for respiratory illnesses, particularly in at-risk populations including children, the elderly, and asthmatics.

WHAT IS THE ANSWER ?

Ecohealth Products Pvt Ltd has pride in presenting a unique proprietary compound, SULFARREST, with the following properties:

Controls sulfur spread in the air

Improves fuel efficiency by 2% to 5%

Decreases soot deposit in chimneys and the walls of boiler tubes, decreasing the expenses on cleaning

Mode of usage : 2-5 kgs of Sulfarrest (depending on Sulfur concentration in the coal) to be added to 1 ton of coal before being fired.

Mode of action : Sulfarrest is a unique formulation which, when sprayed or mixed with coal before burning, reacts with the Sulfur content, reducing it to a benign Sulfide compound, which is precipitated along with the coal ash. It thereby reduces the spread of the toxic Sulfur dioxide fumes in the air, eliminating all the associated ill-effects including the danger of acid rain.
