  10. Innovative Mercury Remediation System Has Been Successfully Demonstrated To Reduce Contamination In Power Plant Wastewater
    10/24/2018

    Aqua Metrology Systems (AMS), has recently completed the successful demonstration of a proof of concept for the removal of dissolved mercury (Hg2+) in power plant wastewater. The SafeGuard H2O system developed by AMS offers a low-cost, reliable remediation system proven to address a range of trace metal contaminants, including ionic mercury. With more than 300 coal ash impoundments across the U.S., ionic mercury among other hazardous chemicals is a primary concern for power plant wastewater and typically requires costly treatment prior to discharge to ensure environmental and public health.
