Welcome to Emission Resource Group, LLC.
In late 2009 former CEO of NAES Corporation, Tom DeNova, got into a discussion with several associates regarding a Pacific Northwest power producer’s challenges with their eastern Oregon power plant. Facing legal challenges over their plants alleged violation of the Clean Air Act, the firm was under legal pressure to correct air quality issues at their facility; which represents 60% of the State of Oregon's base load power generation.
Mr. DeNova quickly realized that anyone who could resolve this power producer’s issues with their Eastern Oregon plant, could also do so for every other coal-fired power producer in the nation. As a result Emission Resource Group was formed to work out the technical hurdles for solving this nation-wide problem. The goal was to bring a realistic solution to the Nation’s power producers that would permit them to continue operating their facilities in compliance with clean air guidelines, in turn giving our Nation the breathing room needed to map out a realistic transition to more environmentally sustainable energy technologies.
Understanding that the new technologies of our energy future will require substantial energy from the Nation’s existing energy infrastructure to complete their development, it seemed obvious to Tom that anyone who could clean up the smoke stack emissions of our Nation’s six hundred or so coal-fired power plants would create a solution representing a significant business opportunity.
Thus Emission Resource Group came into being.
