Feb 11, 2020 7:59 AM

HIGHLANDS RANCH, Colo., Feb. 11, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Advanced Emissions Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADES) (the "Company" or "ADES"), the parent company of ADA-ES, Inc. and ADA Carbon Solutions, LLC (collectively, "ADA"), today announced a price increase of 10% on all activated carbon products and front end coal additives sold by ADA. This price increase will be effective on all shipments made on or after March 1, 2020 or as contracts allow.

Mild weather coupled with depressed natural gas pricing has resulted in lower demand of these products in the mercury control market and consequently a higher cost per pound as fixed costs are absorbed by less volume. In addition, costs of key raw materials and continued escalation in freight has resulted in a higher cost per pound to produce and deliver. This price recovery is necessary to preserve the profitability of the business and allow for future investment into the business.
