  • Fate of Mercury in Synthetic Gypsum Used for Wallboard
    Fate of Mercury in Synthetic Gypsum Used for Wallboard

    Dec 31, 2007 Finally, Task 7 was added to evaluate synthetic gypsum produced at a power plant from an additional coal type. In the project, process stacks in the wallboard plant were sampled using the Ontario Hydro method. In every task, the stack locations sampled included a gypsum dryer and a gypsum calciner

    Vibrating Fluid Bed Dryer (VFBD) – VFBD coal drying system is the best possible design. This can handle upto 60 mm of particle size with max. of 5% over size upto 80 mm. This technology works on the principle of vibrations. Coal is fed on to a vibrating fluidized bed having a height of 100 to 500 mm

    Jul 22, 2020 Jul 22, 2020 While one drywall board may look very much like another, some are made with naturally occurring gypsum, while others are made from coal-fired power plant waste and can introduce mercury into the environment during manufacturing. This article includes details of HBN’s recently updated analysis of mercury emissions from drywall manufacturing and our current

    Sep 22, 2011 Sourcing the Gypsum Gypsum is a naturally occurring mineral, and millions of tons of it are mined each year; CertainTeed Corp. alone has six mines in North America. But most wall-board plants built in the past 20 years are located not near mines, but near coal-fired power plants, which provide a ready supply of synthetic gypsum—derived from sulfur dioxide filtered from the power

    A gypsum ore dryer is often necessary to reduce the surface moisture and prepare the ore for further processing. A grinding step may follow drying. Synthetic Gypsum. Synthetic gypsum, or syn gyp, is produced as a result of the flue gas desulfurization process used at coal-fired power plants to scrub pollutants from emissions. For this reason

    Jul 22, 2020 Jul 22, 2020 Once the FGD gypsum is taken from the coal plant to the drywall manufacturing plant, it is heated in an oven to drive off the water and bake the ingredients into a homogenous board. During this heating process, some of the mercury pollution that was captured in the flue of the power plant is released from the smokestacks of drywall factories. [4]
