Waste-to-energy (WTE) plants convert unsorted urban waste into energy through a process of incineration in a boiler
The combustion of waste generates a flue gas containing different concentrations of pollutants, such as acid gases, mercury, metals, and volatile organic compounds.
The concentration of pollutants measured at the boiler outlet can vary depending on the waste composition. Such waste heterogeneity can cause several problems for mercury removal at high temperatures because activated carbons cannot absorb effectively this extremely volatile element.
A2A Ambiente is therefore looking for a collaboration partner to develop a system to optimize the performance of a dry system flue gas de-acidification specifically for mercury removal.
This is an electronic Request-for-Partners (eRFP) Challenge; the Solver will only need to submit a written proposal to be evaluated by the Seeker with the goal of establishing a collaborative partnership.
