Hi: Are you sure the price is U$2.0 per Lb for the PAC for mercury removal at coal fire power plants?

Thank you, rodger, for your question. I have deleted mention of the cost of activated carbon for a couple reasons:
(a) The cost is not fixed but is influenced by factors such as manufacturer, distributor, and time and place of sale.
(b) The activated carbon used for mercury removal (as well as other purposes) is often marketed as part of a larger system.
Thanks again for raising the question. It may, however, take a couple of days for the correction to show up on our Web site.
