The LIFE+ SOREME project is based on the results of the MERCSORB project (“Single state production from waste tyres of the best existing sorbent for the removal of mercury from gas stream: sulphur impregnated carbon”) funded by the Europan Commision within the FP6 Co-operative research projects – Horizontal research activities involving SMEs. The conclusion of that project defined the sorbent production at laboratory level and the design and a preliminary implementation of a project prototype.
The SOREME project will demonstrate the real functioning of the innovative sorbent demonstrating its mercury absorption capacity, by optimising and demonstrating the global functioning of the plant and the innovative sorbent continuous production, through tests at laboratory, semi-industrial and industrial level.
