The purpose of this paper is to review the types and performance of sorbents for mercury capture in gasification power generation units. The authors also review the capacity of many of these sorbents for elemental mercury from nitrogen. Based on their assessment, the authors provide future direction for mercury sorbent development for fuel gas applications based on the requirements by the research and development agreement between the DOE NETL and Johnson Matthey.
