The market size in terms of value for activated carbon for mercury control in flue gas is expected to reach $12,193.72 million by 2019 at a CAGR of 19.25% between 2014 and 2019. The Regulatory framework and cost and adaptability are the key factors driving the growth of this market .The regulations imposed by regulatory authorities, such as EPA (Environmental protection agency) and MATS (Mercury and Air Toxics Standards) has set the limit for the use of mercury in power plants and manufacturing factories.

Activated carbon consumption will increase in future as the emission standards will become more stringent causing mercury emitter to switch to more efficient technologies. Activated carbon injection systems can be installed along with the currently used equipment, such as ECP, scrubbers, FF, and FGD. AC has shown promising results with mercury capture rates as high as 90.0% when used with the conventional flue gas capture equipment, such as ECP and scrubbers. However, mercury control emission is relatively less stringent in Asia-Pacific and Europe. In Europe, plants are not penalized if they fail to meet the emission standards. Also, there is no definite guideline or a roadmap towards reducing mercury emission. The concept of BAT (best available technology) is currently applicable in Europe. The documentation as such is suggestive towards the use of activate carbon for mercury control.

Speak to Analyst:

The activated carbon manufactured is currently used mostly for water purification or is exported. With the advent of more stringent emission guidelines, the current activated carbon manufacturers can also supply the product for emission control applications. Thus, the region is unlikely to witness activated carbon supply bottlenecks. Haycarb Plc (Sri Lanka), one the world’s largest suppliers of activated carbon already has an established supply chain in Asia-Pacific.
