Demand For Mercury Emissions Control Grows as Market Value Expected to Reach into the Billions

Palm Beach, FL – January 12, 2022 – News Commentary – Flue gas is the gas exiting to the atmosphere via a flue, which is a pipe or channel for conveying exhaust gases from a fireplace, oven, furnace boiler or steam generator. Quite often, the flue gas refers to the combustion exhaust gas produced at power plants.  Mercury pollution in the atmospheric environment is a matter of international concern. Mercury in coal-fired flue gas is the first human mercury emission source and has become the focus of national mercury pollution control.   Coal is the primary source of power, heat and energy which provides around 30.00% of primary energy needs, 40.00% of world’s electricity, and is used in the production of 70.00% of the world’s steel. Coal combustion for power generation in thermal power plants is the largest contributor of mercury emission. China, the U.S., India, and Japan are the world’s largest consumers of coal.  In Europe, Germany is the largest consumer of coal with the consumption showing an increasing trend along with a reduction in subsidies of renewable energy sources. The coal burning (all uses including power plants) is the largest consumer in flue gas market. The market size, according to MarketsAndMarkets, for the same is projected to reach $5.638.96 million by 2019, registering a CAGR of 20.68% between 2014 and 2019.  Active companies in the markets today include:  Midwest Energy Emissions Corp. (OTCQB: MEEC), Cabot Corporation (NYSE: CBT), Advanced Emissions Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADES), Camber Energy, Inc. (NYSE: CEI), Tronox Holdings plc (NYSE:TROX).


The MarketsAndMarkets report continued: “The activated carbon for mercury control market in flue gas is projected to register a CAGR of 19.25% between 2014 and 2019 and is expected to generate the global market size in terms of value with $12,193.72million by 2019.  There are eight different applications of activated carbon for mercury control in flue gas. They are coal burning (all uses including power plants), oil & natural gas burning, primary production of ferrous metals, primary production of non-ferrous metals, gold mining & production (small scale & large scale), cement production, oil refining, and others.  The activated carbon for mercury control market in flue gas is increasing owing to the following factors: Stringent government norms and regulations related to mercuric emission in North America; Cost and adaptability; and Increase in number of coal-fired power plants.”
