Mercury reduction at stainless steel EAF Outokumpu stainless Oy - Tornio

EAF - Finland

By introducing Sorbacal® Micro 2135, Outokumpu reduced the emission of Hg by 70-90%. By using Sorbacal® Micro 2135 the ATEX classification was removed which also lead to easier handling and logistics. Technical support from Lhoist was present thoughout the entire project. Outokumpu Tornio in Finland produces 1.6 million tonnes of stainless steel per year.

Mercury abatement on a coal combustion plant with Sorbacal® Micro sorbents

CPP - Czech Republic

A Czech large coal combustion plant (>300 MWe) decided to co-operate with Lhoist to optimize their mercury capture. During trials with different sorbents injected into the duct in front of the fabric filter, the best efficiency was found with the use of Sorbacal® Micro 6375. The targeted emission limit of 7 μg/Nm3 was met.

Removing micro-pollutants without risk of sorbent combustion

Waste incinerator - Europe

European air regulations not only limit emissions of acid pollutants and dust. They also restrict micro-pollutants. Research by the Lhoist R&D Center led to the development of a mineral non-flammable adsorbent substitute for carbon-based products. It removes micro-pollutants, including dioxins, furans and volatile heavy metals much more safely, and across a far wider range of treatment conditions.
