Clean Air Act: Mercury Control Technologies at Coal-Fired Power Plants Have Achieved Substantial Emissions Reductions
John B. Stephenson (au)
The 491 U.S. coal-fired power plants are the largest unregulated industrial source of mercury emissions nationwide, annually emitting about 48 tons of mercury — a toxic element that poses health threats. Systems that inject sorbents — powdery substances to which mercury binds — into the exhaust from boilers of coal-fired power plants are ready for commercial deployment. Tests of sorbent injection systems, the most mature mercury control technology (MCT), were conducted on a variety of coal types and boiler configurations. This report examines: (1) reductions achieved by MCT and the extent of their use at power plants; (2) the cost of MCT; and (3) key issues EPA faces in regulating mercury emissions from power plants.
