Removing mercury with activated carbon

Granular Activated carbon is effective at physically adsorbing trace components from gas streams due to its high population of micropores; however, the capacity is low. By impregnating the granular activated carbon with a compound that will chemically react with the mercury, capacity can be enhanced. It is imperative that not only must the mercury be removed to non-detectable levels but that it is adsorbed in a form which will not elute from the activated carbon bed under fluctuating conditions.
