Abstract The paper gives results of a study of bench-scale experiments under conditions simulating municipal waste combustors (MWCs) and coal-fired utilities to study mercury (Hg) capture by dry sorbents. The effect of reaction temperature on the capture of different Hg species--H(sup 0) and Hg(II)--by various types of dry sorbents was the focus of bench-scale tests. An attempt was also made in this study to compare the bench-scale results with results obtained from pilot studies and to explain disparities in fuel- and unit-specific performance. The authors' investigations showed that the reaction temperature and Hg species strongly affect Hg control.
