The paper reports results of bench-scale tests to determine the effects of injecting activated carbon sorbents to control total mercury (Hg) emissions from coal-based power units. To optimize the Hg removal, the experiments included the capture of elemental Hg, mercuric chloride, and mercuric oxide by different activated carbon sorbents at temperatures (100 and 140 C) and Hg concentrations (approximately 1 ppb Hg) representative of applications in coal combustors. The paper also reports a comparison of these results with earlier investigations of Hg control under Municipal waste combustion conditions.
