A leading strategy for control of mercury emissions from combustion processes involves removal of elemental mercury from the flue gas by injection of activated carbon sorbent. After particulate capture and disposal in a landfill, it is critical that the captured mercury remains permanently sequestered in the sorbent. The environmental stability of sorbed mercury was determined on two commercial, activated carbons, one impregnated using gaseous sulfur, and on two activated carbons that were… CONTINUE READING
