Energy & Environmental Research Center
The Energy & Environmental Research Center (EERC) is a research, development, demonstration, and commercialization facility recognized as one of the world’s leading developers of cleaner, more efficient energy technologies as well as environmental technologies to protect and clean our air, water, and soil. The EERC is a high-tech, nonprofit branch of the University of North Dakota, which operates like a business. The EERC currently employs more than 300 people and is aggressively expanding its staff. The Center was founded in 1951 as the Robertson Lignite Research Laboratory, a federal facility under the U.S. Bureau of Mines. It became a federal energy technology center under the U.S. Department of Energy in 1977 and was defederalized in 1983. Today, the EERC leverages and enhances government research dollars by developing working partnerships with industry, government, and the research community. Since 1983, the EERC has had more than 1200 clients in all 50 states and 51 countries. In FY2011, 94% of its contracts were funded by nonfederal entities.

FMC Environmental Solutions
FMC Environmental Solutions Division provides proprietary and specialty solutions that prevent or remediate contamination of air, soil and water. FMC Environmental Solutions consists of the Air Pollution Control, Soil & Groundwater Remediation and Water Treatment business units. Air Pollution Control, offers the power utility and manufacturing industries solutions for SO
from FMC features technology exclusively licensed from NASA. It provides a simple, low capital cost and environmentally-friendly way for the power industry to effectively reduce NO
. With potential NO
reductions of up to 70%, FMC's patented technology oxidizes nitrogen oxide (NO) and elemental mercury (Hg°) in flue gas to forms that can be captured by flue-gas desulfurization (FGD) systems or other scrubbing devices. PerNOxide allows industrial and utility boilers to achieve significant levels of NO
reduction without the large capital investment or ongoing maintenance costs typically associated with selective catalytic reduction (SCR). PerNOxide can be implemented on an as-needed basis, utilizing existing ducts, simple spray application and inexpensive to operate chemistry. FMC Corporation is a diversified chemical company serving agricultural, industrial, environmental and consumer markets globally for more than a century with innovative solutions, applications and quality products.
