Mercury Emissions:

Coal Fired Power Plants

Activated carbon purifies gas and air using its ability to adsorb chemical compounds that are dangerous or create strong odors.


Mercury is a trace element present in natural gas and coal that is harmful to the environment.  Flue gas from coal fired utilities, industrial boilers, and cement kilns can contain high concentrations of mercury. These emissions must be removed to meet regulatory standards.    


For reliable removal of mercury that enabled compliance with Mercury Air Toxics Standards (MATS), choose our AuroraPAC™ powdered activated carbon, which can be tailored to meet your regulatory needs.


We also offer a brominated product (AuroraPAC™ Plus) that is designed to promote mercury oxidation specifically for mercury capture in low-halogen applications such as Powder River Basin coals.
