Mercury Control

B&W has been actively involved in research and development, demonstration programs and implementation of mercury control systems since the early 1990s. We can tailor a multi-faceted solution that considers many variables, such as the existing or planned emissions control system, fuel, flue gas composition, flyash characteristics, stack mercury limits and many other operational factors.

You can trust the industry leader in plant air emissions control technology to provide integrated and cost-effective mercury control solutions for your application.

Solutions

  • Fuel additive systems – designed to enhance mercury emissions reduction and minimize the use of powdered activated carbon (PAC) at power plants using low chlorine coals.
  • Absorption Plus (Hg)® system – designed to inhibit mercury re-emission and to increase the total mercury captured and retained in a wet FGD system.
  • Powdered activated carbon (PAC) – injected into the gas stream in combination with a conventional spray dry absorption process to remove mercury.
  • Sorbent injection – the presence of SO3 in the flue gas can reduce the ability of PAC to capture mercury. By injecting a sorbent prior to the PAC injection location, SO3 poisoning can be reduced and the PAC achieve better utilization.

By understanding the interrelationship between various technologies, as well as the co-benefits achieved with other emissions control systems, our solutions can achieve significant lifecycle cost savings.
