Abstract Information :

Over the past several years, the utility industry in the United States has been implementing compliance and process monitoring strategies for the MATS and MACT regulations. Under these regulations, affected facilities must report mercury emissions to comply with regulatory limits. Specified within these regulations are acceptable technologies that can be used for compliance monitoring and reporting, specifically PS-12A & PS-12B. Utilities can choose between two types of full time Hg monitoring technology in accordance with these performance specifications to capture Hg emission results for compliance reporting. The choice between using Hg CEMS or sorbent trap technology is often decided taking into account costs, sampling location parameters and manpower.

This poster will outline the basic principles of both Hg CEMS and Hg sorbent trap sampling technology and offer a statistical analysis of the Hg CEMS market in the United States. Information about the number of facilities reporting under this regulation, the technology they have adopted under this rule and analysis of the market share of each technology will also be presented within the poster.
