 Project objective

Mercury emissions created during industrial processes are one of the most harmful pollutants, causing neurotoxic effects in humans and animals. Upcoming changes to EU Industrial Emission Directives are set to reduce mercury levels over the coming years with a plan to eventually eliminate mercury emissions entirely. The largest emitters of mercury are our target markets coal-fired power plants, waste incineration and all combustion plants (cement, chemical industry, etc.), are required to retrofit costly solution technologies to meet limit values. But, identifying the most applicable mercury reducing solution for each individual plant is an industry challenge since there is no ‘one-size fits all’ solution due to varying fuel composition, technology mix and plant configuration at each individual plant.

Building on our globally unique know-how for measuring, controlling, regulating and optimising feedstock, we have developed MEC, a unique mobile mercury testing facility that enables us to offer our clients a site specific solution with our further innovative plant technology. Our revolutionary new systems accurately measure mercury content and distribution in the flue gas duct. Subsequently, a significant reduction of the mercury content takes place using our new innovative processes and plants.

Having proven TRL6, our objectives during this Horizon 2020 project are to finalise the MEC technology and prove to our target markets that MEC is a viable means of delivering an effective combined solution for efficient mercury emissions detection and reduction. We expect for MEC advancements to the SOA to enable us to meet our company objective to become a leading European player for mercury emissions detection and control.

It is key for us to plan our market entry strategy carefully to ensure success is maximised. This Feasibility Study will allow us to: refine market knowledge; scope the legislative pathway; the work plan and produce a business plan.

Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "MEC" project.

For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.

Send me an  email ( and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.

Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
