The work will be carried out as part of the Clean Air Interstate Rule, which is intended to substantially reduce US power plant emissions by 2015, impacts 28 eastern states and the District of Columbia. In order to comply with the legislation, power station operators will have to install retrofit scrubbing and related equipment in flues and stacks, normally at height, requiring extensive scaffolding to provide the necessary access.

In a statement, Patent executive vice president and general manager Robert Safier said; “estimates of the overall industry wide costs for Clean Air retrofits and upgrades by the 2015 deadline range as high as US$20 billion (€16 billion).”
