Removal Hg0 from Flue Gas with Modified VTSS by KBr and KI

Vanadium titanium steel slag (VTSS) containing transition metal can promote the adsorption of Hg0. The method of KBr and KI impregnation was applied to modify VTSS and the properties of the adsorbents were tested. The Hg0 removal tests were carried out with a fixed bed under different conditions. The results showed that the Hg0 adsorption capacity increase with the increasing temperature. The efficiency was highest with KI(3)/VTSS at 20C and adsorption capacity was 163.4 ug/g after 3 h. The highest Hg0 removal efficiency were 90.6% for KI(3)/VTSS, 73.5% for KBr(10)/VTSS/ VTSS at 120C, respectively.
