A promising technology has been developed to capture and remove elemental mercury species from coal-fired power plants. Powerspan Corp. has licensed the technology and initiated a bench and pilot test program to develop the Photochemical Oxidation, or PCOTM, process for commercial application with subbituminous and lignite fuels. The process has the potential to serve as a low cost mercury oxidation technology that will facilitate elemental mercury removal in a downstream SO2 scrubber, wet… CONTINUE READING
