Activated Carbon Project Funded by EPRI

The Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) has selected the Illinois State Geological Survey to prepare a large quantity of a chemically modified, high-capacity, activated carbon fabric cloth for a pilot-scale demonstration test at a coal-fired power plant site. The new high-capacity sorbent developed by Seyed Dastgheib has a mercury removal capacity several times higher than the best commercial sorbents tested to date.
