Abstract

Integrated gasification combined cycle (IGCC) power generation from coal is receiving attention for its high efficiency. However, fuel gas generated from coal gasification also contains elemental mercury. Most research to date, both practical and fundamental, has focused on the removal and conversion of elemental mercury from real or simulated coal combustion flue gas. Comparatively little attention has been paid to the capture of elemental mercury from coal-derived fuel gas. The purpose of this study was the development of metal oxide adsorbents suitable for the removal of mercury from coal gasification gas. Iron oxide-cerium oxide adsorbents with varying compositions were developed and tested for elemental mercury removal from simulated coal gasification gas. The durability and regenerability of the adsorbents was also investigated.
