Mercury Emissions Monitoring System Awarded TÜV Certification

Jul 05 2016

Power plants and waste incinerators in Germany and across Europe can now use a fully integrated solution for mercury emissions monitoring that is certified by TÜV Rheinland.

The Thermo Scientific (USA) Mercury Freedom System, which is designed to provide process controllers and compliance monitors with reliable continuous emissions data, has undergone testing by accredited certification provider TÜV Rheinland to meet certain quality and safety standards.

“In the coming years, Germany is preparing to implement new, stricter regulations to limit mercury emissions from power plants, and tighter emissions standards may follow across Europe,” said Salim Hiouel, CEMS product line manager, environmental and process monitoring for Thermo Fisher Scientific. “TÜV certification for the Mercury Freedom System will help power plants to meet regulations using a system designed for high-sensitivity, fast response times and lowest-possible operating costs.”

The Mercury Freedom System, which already meets U.S. EPA requirements for continuous emissions monitoring, measures elemental, ionic and total mercury in exhaust stacks. It is designed for ease of installation and use, simple maintenance and high reliability, even in harsh conditions. The Mercury Freedom System, which is used by more than 600 facilities worldwide, incorporates Thermo Scientific iSeries platform components, including an analyser, calibrator, probe controller and probe/converter. 

“We strive to ensure that our products meet the stringent regulations that vary across countries,” said Gert-Jan Bakkenes, EMEA commercial director, environmental and process monitoring for Thermo Fisher. “We have enhanced components of the Mercury Freedom System since its initial entry into the market to enable our customers to operate flexibly and efficiently. With TÜV certification, we are eager to make this platform available to power plants and incinerators in Europe.”
