A Robust and Low Cost Continuous Emissions Monitor

A Robust and Low Cost Continuous Emissions Monitor

Researcher: Grzegorz Glaczynski

Full Project Title: A Robust and Low Cost Continuous Emissions Monitor for Real-Time Measurements of Mercury Emissions

Funding Body: Science Foundation Ireland

Project Type: Postdoc, TIDA

Period:  January 2014 – December 2014

Project Description

MErcury Analysis by Differential Isotopic Absorption (MEADIA) is a new UCC technology that is robust, inexpensive, and highly selective towards mercury.  It is ideal for Continuous Emissions Monitoring (CEM) of mercury from the thousands of coal-fired power stations worldwide.  This project will determine the most appropriate system configuration, conduct experiments to quantify the detection limit, and build and optimise a prototype as a platform for further commercialisation. Full exploitation of this technology will be supported by follow-on funding to bring the major market benefits of low capital and running costs, high selectivity, and fast, real-time measurements to CEM customers.
