Lumex Instruments is traditionally taking part in 12th Mercury and multi-pollutant emissions from coal workshop (MEC 12) which will be held in Mpumalanga, South Africa from 28th of February to 3rd of March, 2017. As always, it is focused on mercury and combined pollutant control from coal combustion. The MEC 12 workshop will include issues such as coal chemistry, control technologies and reduction strategies, legislation and policy, emission inventories.
Our company has been participating in MEC meetings since 2006. This year we are presenting a thermoscanning technique (detecting dynamic behavior of the mercury release from a sample during its gradual heating), which was used to study total mercury and mercury speciation in coals from South Africa and Russia.
