DEREGISTRATION OF SECURITIES

Advanced Emissions Solutions, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the "Registrant") is filing this Post-Effective Amendment No. 2 to Form S-8 Registration Statement (this "Post-Effective Amendment No. 2") to amend the Registration Statement on Form S-8 (Registration No. 333-159715), which was filed by ADA-ES, Inc., a Delaware corporation ("ADA-ES"), on June 3, 2009 (the "Registration Statement"), relating to shares of its common stock that were issuable under the ADA-ES, Inc. Profit Sharing Retirement Plan (the "Plan"), as amended by that certain Post-Effective Amendment No. 1 to Form S-8 Registration Statement filed by the Registrant on July 3, 2013 ("Post-Effective Amendment No. 1", and together with the Registration Statement, the "Prior Registration Statement"), which was filed in connection with the Registrant’s acquisition of ADA-ES wherein each outstanding share of common stock of ADA-ES was converted into one share of common stock of the Registrant and the Plan was assumed by the Registrant. The Registrant is no longer offering its securities under the Plan.
This Post-Effective Amendment No. 2 is being filed in order to deregister any securities that remain unsold or unissued under the Plan, and to terminate the Prior Registration Statement as to such securities. In accordance with an undertaking made by the Registrant in the Prior Registration Statement to remove from registration, by means of a post-effective amendment, any of the securities which remain unsold at the termination of the offering, the Registrant hereby removes from registration all of the securities registered under the Prior Registration Statement which are issuable pursuant to the Plan and remain unsold as of the date hereof. Although the securities under the Plan are being deregistered, this Post-Effective Amendment No. 2 shall not serve to reduce the number of securities registered under, or subject to issuance pursuant to, any of the other plans that were listed in Post-Effective Amendment No. 1.
