Mercury CEMS Hot Topic Hour Provides Examples of Reliability
Within the last few months the CEMS supplier industry has been able to compile some good evidence of reliable operation of mercury CEMS. In our Hot Topic Hour Reynaldo Forte of EPA provided the very latest insights on mercury CEMS including CAMR requirements, technical issues and next steps in improving performance in challenging environments.
Thermo Electron, ADA-ES, Tekran, and Sick Maihak provided the latest in hardware development. Cooper detailed a CEMS which measures mercury as well as other metals. The sense of the discussions was that mercury CEMS are proving to be accurate enough and reliable enough, but they will be expensive. The initial cost could be $200,000 to $400,000 for a complete system. The major ongoing expense will be labor.
With more than 800 systems needed and a price of $200,000 per system, the investment will be $160 million in the U.S. alone.
This two-hour conference included a number of expert participants. Fortunately it was recorded and is one of nine recorded Hot Topic Hours now available free of charge to our subscribers. Power points accompanying the presentations were displayed and are available independently in the Mercury Decision Tree.
