Title: REMOVAL OF AIR TOXIC METALS EMISSIONS FROM FOSSIL-FUEL COMBUSTION SOURCES
Agency: EPA
Contract: N/A
Award Amount: $49,888.00
 

Abstract:

AIR TOXIC METALS AND THEIR COMPOUNDS ARE PRODUCED FROM THE COMBUSTION OF FOSSIL-FUELS. THE COMBUSTION OF COAL AND FUEL OIL REPRESENTS AN EXTREMELY LARGE CATEGORY OF SOURCE EMISSIONS. RESEARCH IS PROPOSED THAT WILL PROVIDE A MEANS FOR REMOVING THE VOLATILE METAL CONTENT OF FLUE GAS GENERATED FROM POWER AND STEAM GENERATING PLANTS USING ZEOLITIC OR CARBONACEOUS ADSORBENTS. A LABORATORY-SCALE FIXTURE WILL BE USED TO EVALUATE THE CAPABILITY OF SEVERAL ADSORBENTS IN REMOVING MERCURY VAPOR FROM A SIMULATED FLUE GAS. THE TECHNOLOGY IS DESIGNED TO BE APPLIED AS A LOW-COST RETROFIT TO EXISTING EQUIPMENT USING COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE REAGENTS. ADSORBENTS FOR TOXIC METALS CONTROL COULD CONCEIVABLY BE INCORPORATED INTO A COMBINED TECHNOLOGY WHERE SO2, NOX, AND PARTICULATE MATTER ARE ALSO CONTROLLED. THE PRIMARY OBJECTIVE OF THE PHASE I PROGRAM IS TO DETERMINE THE TECHNICAL FEASIBILITY OF USING SORBENTS IN A AIR TOXICS REMOVAL PROCESS. FAVORABLE RESULTS WILL BE USED TO SET UP A PHASE II SITE EVALUATION OF THE TECHNOLOGY.
