Gaseous mercury capture

Damien McCarthy (Inventor), Grant Edwards (Inventor)

    Research output: Patent


    The present invention relates to methods, systems and devices for safely and efficiently capturing gaseous mercury and removing the mercury from an environment. A device of the present invention may comprise a sorbent material, a porous body and a means of binding the sorbent material to the body. The gaseous mercury may be captured by such a device upon contact of the mercury with the sorbent material and, after use, be safely removed from the environment.
