Advanced Emissions Solutions, Inc.

Business Description


ADA-ES, Inc. (“ADA”), a Colorado corporation, was incorporated in 1997. Pursuant to an Agreement and Plan of Merger ("Reorganization"), effective July 1, 2013, Advanced Emissions Solutions, Inc. (“ADES”), a Delaware company incorporated in 2011, replaced ADA as the publicly-held corporation and ADA became a wholly-owned subsidiary of ADES. Each outstanding share of ADA’s common stock automatically converted into one share of common stock of ADES and the shareholders of ADA became stockholders of ADES on a one-for-one basis, holding the same number of shares in and the same ownership percentage of ADES after the reorganization as they held in and of ADA prior to the reorganization. ADES’s common stock became listed on the NASDAQ Capital Market under the symbol, "ADES," ADA’s previous symbol, and ADA’s stock ceased trading on the NASDAQ Capital Market on July 1, 2013. From March 30, 2015 through July 6, 2016, ADES's common stock was traded on the OTC Pink® Marketplace - Limited Information Tier under the trading symbol "ADES." Effective, July 7, 2016 ADES's common stock began trading on the NASDAQ Global Market under the symbol, ADES.

Our major activities include:

Development and sale of technology to reduce emissions and improve operations of coal-fired boilers used for power generation and industrial processes;

Development and sale of equipment, specialty chemicals, consulting services and other products designed to reduce emissions of mercury, acid gases, metals and other pollutants, and the providing of technology services in support of our customers' emissions compliance strategies;

Through Tinuum Group, an unconsolidated entity, reduction of mercury and nitrogen oxide ("NOX") emissions at select coal-fired power generators through the burning of Refined Coal ("RC") produced by RC facilities placed in service by Tinuum Group. We benefit from Tinuum Group's production and sale of RC, which generates tax credits, as well as the revenue from selling or leasing RC facilities to tax equity investors.

Research and development of technologies and other solutions to advance cleaner energy and to help our customers meet existing and future regulatory and business challenges, including technologies designed to address regulated environmental impacts related to power generation or industrial processes.

The share of coal-fired power generation as a percentage of U.S. electricity generation is expected to continue to decrease over the coming years due to low projected natural gas prices, increasingly stringent environmental regulations and increased deployment of renewable power generating assets. However, we believe that coal-fired power generation will remain a significant component of the U.S. power generation mix for many years given coal's abundance, affordability, reliability and availability as a domestic fuel source. In its Annual Energy Outlook for 2017, the Energy Information Administration ("EIA") projects that coal will provide 22% of electricity generation in 2040 if the Clean Power Plan ("CPP") of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency ("EPA"), addressing limiting greenhouse gas emissions, is implemented. If the CPP is not implemented, the EIA projects that coal will provide 31% of power generated. The primary drivers for many of our products and services are environmental laws and regulations impacting the electric power generation industry and other coal users. These regulations include the Mercury and Air Toxics Standards ("MATS"), a federal regulation that requires all of the existing fleet and all new coal-fired plants to control mercury emissions, acid gases, and particulate matter, as well as various state regulations and permitting requirements for coal-fired power plants. In addition to the federal MATS rule, certain states have their own mercury rules that are similar to, or more stringent than MATS, and many plants around the country have agreed to consent decrees, which require pollution controls that, in some cases, are more restrictive than the existing regulations. We continue to believe the MATS rule as well as certain state regulations create a large market for RC and EC products. Additionally, the proposed, pending, and future rules relating to carbon dioxide (CO2) or other greenhouse gas emissions, effluent discharge, coal combustion residuals and other pollutants are driving, and we expect will continue to drive, future markets for which we may develop products and solutions.

In general, coal is a low cost, stable and reliable source of domestic energy that, unlike many other forms of energy, can be easily stored in large quantities. We believe coal is critical to ensuring the U.S. has a secure and stable source of energy. With current environmental regulations, we believe it is unlikely that any new coal plants will be financed or constructed, which suggests that the average plant age in 2040 will be 64 years old. With the continued retirement of the less efficient and generally smaller coal plants switching of fuel sources from coal to other fuels such as natural gas, and the influx of intermittent generation such as solar and wind, we believe coal-fired generation will be seen as a complement to the other fuel sources in providing electricity to users and supporting the electric grid. This belief is reflected in the CPP, published in October 2015 by the EPA. Continued pressure from renewable energy sources and natural gas combined with uncertainty regarding regulations on CO2 emissions will likely push coal-fired generators to increase their focus on maintaining regulatory compliance in the most efficient and cost effective manner, while also responding to intermittent generating sources. As coal plants age and they are dispatched with more variability rather than at base-load levels for which they were designed, we expect that increased support will be required to assure reliable operation and continued compliance with environmental regulations. We expect that plants and owners will require additional support as their aging workforce retires and on-site expertise is no longer as available, and as utilities allocate resources elsewhere in their power generation fleets.
