Non-Halogenated Activated Carbon for Mercury Capture from Coal-Fired Power Plant Flue-Gas

Activated carbon injection for the control of mercury (Hg) from Coal-Fired Power Plant (CFPP) flue-gas is an established pollution control technique. Carbonxt has developed a non-halogenated activated carbon that has demonstrated high performance mercury removal. This presentation includes testing at the Gulf Power Mercury Research Center (MRC), a unique testing facility used for evaluating pollution-control technologies under actual CFPP flue-gas conditions. Carbonxt has tested a number of products under various conditions (injection location/particulate control configurations, injection rate, presence of SO3).  The results varied according to the parameters adjusted but reached a maximum adsorption of 97% Hg removal.
