Abstract Information :

Emission of mercury from coal-fired power plants, waste incinerators and cement kilns is a global concern. With legislation lowering the emission limits, the importance of accurate monitoring of emissions is getting more and more demanding.

Reliable monitoring in the 1 µg/m³-Range, applicable to new power plants in Europe, even under challenging conditions of humidity, complex chemical matrices and high dust conditions is paramount in installing and optimizing mercury abatement technics.

Short-Term Mercury trapping combined with a direct Zeeman Mercury Analyzer is the method of choice in flue and stack gas and can be performed on site. The method description and case studies from measurement campaigns at the plants in the EU are presented and discussed.
