What Can the Mer-Cure™ Mercury Reduction System Do for You?

GE has developed an advanced mercury control technology capable of high removal efficiencies. This patented technology, called Mer-Cure, is an enhanced activated carbon injection system which has unique attributes that optimize mercury oxidation and subsequent mercury capture. The sorbent is injected into the duct upstream of the air heater, which allows for enhanced utilization of the effective temperature range for oxidation and provides longer residence time for optimal mercury capture.

For additional mercury capture and reduced sorbent consumption, our patented activated carbon milling technology can add even more value to your plant's emissions reduction system.

Benefits

  • Enhanced mercury (Hg) capture rates >90%
  • Reduced sorbent consumption by up to 50% compared to traditional removal systems
  • Lower OPEX
  • Wide range of potential sorbent suppliers
