Biomin, Inc. reports that lab tests and actual projects have shown that granular organoclay, bone char (EC-MB), and activated carbon are well-suited for removal of mercury 2 (mercuric mercury, or Hg+2

The company’s organoclay (EC-199) removes mercury (3 grams mercuric mercury per 100 grams of organoclay, some 3 percent of organo-clay by weight), but it also removes organic compounds and helps prevent fouling of the bone char and carbon upstream in the treatment train. The bone char removes 14 percent by weight of mercury. The activated carbon removes any leftover soluble compounds, the company says.
