A completely new and exciting approach for the simultaneous removal of NOx, SOx and Hg from flue gas. Unlike common solutions, this patented technology enables an absorption/extraction process as a single solution while simultaneously treating all three pollutants.
Superior to other processes, the C-MPR™ utilizes a proprietary absorption liquid formulation (based on modified ionic-liquids and oxidizers) implemented in a wet scrubber. NOx, SOx and Hg contained in the flue gas stream react with an oxidizing agent in order to form soluble elements that enter the scrubber. The unique absorbing liquid is constantly circulated within the scrubber in a “closed cycle” in which the flue gas impurities are captured as a stable complex.
Throughout the next phase of the process, the absorbed impurities are extracted into an aqua phase via a mixture-settler to form useful products with high commercial value, such as fertilizers or concentrated acids.
The absorbing liquid’s unique physical properties and the system’s engineering design assures that no liquid is being emitted to the environment.
Another advantage of this technology is the selective extraction ability it offers. The superior absorption liquid runs through a multi-stage extraction process. At each stage of the process, a specific pollutant is easily separated from the mixture. This unique process concentrates both sulfuric acid and nitric acid which is essential for producing them in aqua phase. In addition, all forms of mercury remain in the absorption liquid and can be stabilized and removed by a side process while the liquid is regenerated for reuse.
Removes all pollutants
The system removes all mentioned pollutants, demonstrating exceptional removal rates of NOx (above 85%), SO2 (above 90%) and Hg (above 95%), along with significant environmental and financial benefits. This new approach offers a dramatic change from both economic and environmental perspectives compared to existing technologies currently in place.
The system, which can be custom made and installed as a retrofit, is a scalable solution which can be implemented to various industrial processes.
