Current mercury removal technologies are mainly based on consumable solid adsorbents and chemical additives – which all have significant known downsides and limitations.
Clairion has developed a gas treatment solution to overcome the typical challenges industries face when removing Hg from flue gas. Our C-HgR™ technology is based on an innovative approach using an advanced absorbing liquid formulation implemented in a wet scrubber.
Throughout the process all mercury elements are captured and “locked” in the liquid and are selectively separated from the flue gas. The mercury is extracted and transformed into its most stable form (HgS) for safe disposal and the absorbent liquid is regenerated for reuse.
