Research on Mercury Emissions Regularity and Adsorbing Mercury by Activated Carbon in Coal-fired Power Plants

Abstract:

Article Preview

The coal-fired power plant is the main anthropogenic source of mercury pollution. The mercury in flue gas exists as elemental mercury(Hg0), oxidizing state mercury(Hg2+) and particulate mercury(Hgp). Mercury speciation distribution in flue gas was influenced and controled by the factors including conditions of ignition, desulphurization or denitration and Based on the investigation of coal-fired power plant technologies of removing Hg, this research uses the modified activated carbon (MAC) and studies its removal efficiency. Result indicates that the uptake of Hg by MAC was﹥90%.
