Mercu Removal Ltd
Mercu Removal Ltd. was founded in 2015 within Hutchison Kinrot, a leading environmental technology seed investor, owned by Hutchison Water of CK Hutchison Holdings Ltd. The company holds unique patented gas treatment technology, backed by worldwide experts in applied chemistry. The global move towards pollution emission control and the international awareness to the problem and risks of Mercury have led environmental protection agencies worldwide to introduce stringent regulations and standards limiting mercury emissions. Emitting industries and processes are therefore required to reduce or even cut-out emission entirely.
Mercury (Hg) is a lethal pollutant, highly toxic to humans, contaminating the aquatic food chain which is a food source for billions.
The mercury control technologies commonly applied that are based on combinations of activated carbon injection (ACI), filters and chemical additives, suffer from major drawbacks - limited and variable efficiency, intensive CAPEX/OPEX and contaminated by-products that need to be recycled or disposed.
