The article examines the selection and procurement of equipment for control of hazardous air from mercury produced by coal-fired utility boilers. It looks at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Mercury and Air Toxics Standards (MATS), the methods to control mercury emissions, and the procurement of activated carbon injection. It provides several tables including MATS emission limits for existing coal-fired boilers and difficulty in meeting MATS limit for mercury emissions.
