This paper provides an assessment of the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Fossil Energy's National Energy Technology Laboratory research and development efforts to optimize mercury capture in wet flue gas desulfurization (FGD) systems and characterize the fate of mercury in the resultant by-products. The first portion of the paper provides background information on regulatory drivers relative air pollution control technologies. The second section addresses the mercury and coal utilization by-products research areas and provides details on related projects.
