A large number of selective catalytic reduction (SCR) and flue gas desulfurization (FGD) systems have been ordered as a result of the US Clean Air Interstate Rule (CAIR). A big revenue peak is expected in 2009, but the impact dwindles after 2010, according to a report from the McIlvaine Company. After this timeframe, many positive and negative events could impact sales in the 15 years through 2023. But the report concludes that all US coal-fired units will have NOx and SOx control by 2023. The markets for mercury and particulate control will be even stronger. Also by that time, the odds are better than even that there will be at least 20% more coal-fired capacity. Crystal ball.
