In this article, the authors introduce bench-scale experimental results for gold, palladium and platinum catalysts tested in realistic simulated flue gas. The use of noble metals as catalysts for mercury oxidation in flue gas remains an area of active study. To date, field studies have focused on gold and palladium catalysts installed at pilot scale. Initial results reveal informative characteristics of catalytic mercury oxidation and provide insight for future research into this process.
