It is ideally suited to lower emissions from coal-fired power plants, municipal waste incinerators, cement kilns, chlor-alkali plants and gold mining, the major contributors to mercury pollution in the U.S.
The Tri-Mer mercury scrubber incorporates a wet chemistry process that provides a cost-effective means of reducing all forms of mercury in emissions.
The novel scrubber technology transforms mercury into mercuric sulfide, a stable and manageable form of mercury that can be disposed of as a non-hazardous waste. The exceptionally high efficiency of the Tri-Mer scrubber is the result of a patented oxidation monitoring method, which optimizes system chemistry.
Tri-Mer developed the mercury vapor scrubber in cooperation with ADA Technologies, Inc., Littleton, CO. ADA, an industry leader in mercury pollution clean-up technology, developed the chemistry for Tri-Mer through an EPA grant.
