The article offers information on geothermal power facilities in California that control the emission of H2S, one of non-condensable gases (NCGs). It says that in 1993, it investigated several H2S and mercury removal systems and then decided to use an isothermal system from the Merichem Chemicals & Refinery Services LLC. A diagram is also presented which illustrates how the brine is converted into 250 MW of electrical power while meeting California's emission regulations.
