Colo. Springs Utilities: Effectiveness of scrubber test system will not be shared

From The Gazette:  How well did a test version of the $156 million Neumann Systems Group pollution scrubbers work on the downtown Colorado Springs power plant?

Colorado Springs Utilities won’t say publicly.

Though the performance of the scrubbers has serious implications for air quality in the region and the future of the power plant, Utilities says performance data from the pilot system is a trade secret and can’t be disclosed.

Utilities is “prohibited from releasing this data” because it contains “trade secrets, and/or confidential and financial information,” said Christian Nelson, a Utilities spokesman.
