MercOx: Metrology for oxidized mercury

2017–2020          Traceable standards and methods for oxidised mercury

Mercury is one of the most toxic metals. Traceable calibration methods for oxidized mercury species are needed in order to meet the requirements of EU regulation.

Project develops traceable standards and methods for analysing oxidised Hg in stack emissions and in the atmosphere.

Project actions:
WP1: Traceable calibration
WP2: Measurement of Hg(II)
WP3: Sampling, storage and sample processing
WP4: Field applications – on-line measurements

MIKES tests and validates new and existing standards and methods for on-line and sorbent-based oxidized mercury measurements in stack gas emissions.
