The first part of the webinar will summarize the current state of the literature for Mercury in our  environment.  Mercury has both significant ecological impacts as well as the human health impacts associated with Mercury exposure.

The second part of the webinar provides guidance on how to conduct a successful demonstration of mercury control technology at a coal-fired boiler.  Planning is a critical part of conducting any test; identifying clear objectives is critical to beginning the process.  Options for measurements and for mercury control technologies are discussed.  The uses of demonstration data for compliance planning and equipment procurement are discussed.
