Title (EN) COMPLEXATION AND REMOVAL OF MERCURY FROM FLUE GAS DESULFURIZATION SYSTEMS
(FR) COMPLEXATION ET ÉLIMINATION DE MERCURE À PARTIR DE SYSTÈMES DE DÉSULFURATION DE GAZ DE COMBUSTION
Abstract:
(EN) A method for the reduction and prevention of mercury emissions into the environment from combusted fossil fuels or other off-gases with the use of hypobromite is disclosed. The hypobromite is used for the capture of mercury from the resulting flue gases using a flue gas desulfurization system or scrubber. The method uses hypobromite in conjunction with a scrubber to capture mercury and lower its emission and/or re-emission with stack gases. The method allows the use of coal as a cleaner and environmentally friendlier fuel source as well as capturing mercury from other processing systems.
(FR) L'invention concerne un procédé pour la réduction et la prévention d'émissions de mercure dans l'environnement à partir de combustibles fossiles brûlés ou d'autres dégagements gazeux au moyen d'hypobromite. L'hypobromite est utilisé pour la capture de mercure à partir des gaz de combustion obtenus au moyen d'un système de désulfuration de gaz de combustion ou d'un épurateur. Le procédé utilise un hypobromite conjointement avec un épurateur pour capturer le mercure et réduire son émission et/ou sa réémission avec des gaz de carneau. Le procédé permet l'utilisation de charbon en tant que nettoyant et source de carburant plus écologique ainsi que la capture de mercure à partir d'autres systèmes de traitement.
