(Walnut Creek, CA) Nalco Mobotec, the global leader in air protection technology, announced today it had signed a contract with PPL Corporation to provide mercury emission control at a coal-fired power plant near Colstrip, Montana. PPL is operator and part owner of the Colstrip power plant. The agreement, which took effect on Jan. 1, provides PPL with one of Nalco Mobotec's patented MerControl® additives.
