Albemarle Links With MeadWestvaco

Department: Business
Keywords: Albemarle, mercury, bromine, activated carbon

Albemarle has formed an alliance with MeadWestvaco Specialty Chemicals to develop brominated wood-based activated carbon for use in controlling mercury emissions from coal-burning power plants. The alliance launches MeadWestvaco in the growing market for carbon-based mercury sorbents. For Albemarle, the alliance secures a U.S. supply of carbon to complement the firm’s bromine-based mercury removal technologies. Albemarle entered the mercury reduction market last year with the acquisition of Sorbent Technologies.
