Mercury Emission Control
Reducing pollutants – especially of mercury – in industrial waste gases is currently a worldwide dominant theme and provides operators with new challenges.
To apply the Europe mercury limits which are strongly tightened in 2019, many brown coal power plants are forced to act.
The IEM Fördertechnik has devoted decades in planning and construction of equipment for power generation and has build up specialties in this context to the area of mercury emission control in the exhaust gas. Thus offers the IEM Fördertechnik customized solutions and precisely coordinated systems to ensure that your system can be run environmental friendly, effective and future-proof.
Our specialists provide comprehensive advice and support in all project stages, from basic planning to the final implementation of the new cleaning system.
