Title: 
SOREME - Low cost sorbent for reducing mercury emissions
Principal Investigator: 
Emilia Bramanti
Project type: 
International

Abstract

SOREME project is aimed to the demonstration of the production and application of a low cost sorbent for reducing mercury emissions. SOREME is based on the production from waste tyres of a sulphur impregnated carbon, a sorbent for the removal of mercury from gas stream. The SOREME project objectives are to produce and demonstrate the actual functioning of the innovative sorbent demonstrating its mercury adsorption capacity at laboratory, semi-industrial and industrial level.
