Summary:
Lehigh University research team achieves reductions in emission of the toxic element by altering flue-gas temperature, size of coal particles burned and other physical conditions. They say their new technique could save a 250-megawatt power unit as much as $2 million a year in mercury-control costs. The researchers' findings will be reported in an upcoming issue of the journal Fuel.

Researchers at Lehigh University's Energy Research Center (ERC) have developed and successfully tested a cost-effective technique for reducing mercury emissions from coal-fired power plants.
