Title:
Activated Carbon from Biomass for Mercury Capture: Effect of the Leaching Pretreatment on the Capture Efficiency 
Abstract:
Activated carbons were produced from two European biomasses such as olive residue and wheat straw. The leaching pretreatment is used to study the effect of chlorine and alkali metals on the mercury capture efficiency. The activated carbons were tested for mercury capture in a bench scale reactor against the commercial grade activated carbon NORIT DARCO Hg as well as an activated carbon developed at the Energy and Environmental Research Center (E E RC) from lignite. The mercury capture tests show...    »
