Abstract Information :

Knowledge is power and plant-specific data are key to creating a cost-effective mercury emission reduction plan. As the Minamata Convention timeline advances, many countries now have limited time remaining to evaluate emissions from their coal plants and to determine how they plan to control and, where feasible, reduce these emissions before their national deadline. This talk will summarise how plant-specific data in Indonesia have been key to determining how best to reduce mercury emissions from the coal sector. The presentation will also outline how the approach can be replicated in other countries, even when only minimal data are available. New data from India, focussing on the specific challenge of reducing emissions from high-ash coals, will be included.
