2 CyCurex® - Technology Overview CyCurex® is a generic reagent for the remediation of toxic heavy metals. CyCurex® is a generic reagent for the remediation of toxic heavy metals. The risks of harm from toxic heavy metals wastes are dramatically increased if they are soluble. The risks of harm from toxic heavy metals wastes are dramatically increased if they are soluble. CyCurex® treatment converts soluble metal compounds into their insoluble metal sulphides – back to the form which nature intended them to be!

Toxicity and mobility of wastes are dramatically reduced – and so are the costs associated with handling and disposal.

4 Key Advantages of CyCurex® for Mercury Control in Power Plants Remediates both oxidised and difficult to treat elemental mercury. Remediates both oxidised and difficult to treat elemental mercury. Does not interfere with the existing wet or dry scrubber chemistry. Does not interfere with the existing wet or dry scrubber chemistry. Renders a broad spectrum of heavy metals contaminants insoluble and long term stable. So, retains the commercial integrity of existing saleable by-product gypsum, and does not generate a harmful by-product in need of costly landfill disposal.

CyCurex® co-benefits include; Opacity (SO 3 ) reduction, plus lead and selenium control in plant waters. CyCurex® co-benefits include; Opacity (SO 3 ) reduction, plus lead and selenium control in plant waters. Can be installed in new plants or retrofitted into existing facilities at a fraction of the cost of competitor systems. Can be installed in new plants or retrofitted into existing facilities at a fraction of the cost of competitor systems. Equally applicable and cost effective in both small and large-scale combustion operations, and thus can find application in small-scale incinerators or micro generation power systems, where PAC systems are cost prohibitive.

5 Pilot Trial of the CyCurex ® at Southern Research Institute Coal Combustion Unit, Birmingham, AL, USA SRI 1 Mega Watt coal combustion unit, was specifically designed to model processes experienced by Power utilities. SRI 1 Mega Watt coal combustion unit, was specifically designed to model processes experienced by Power utilities. PRB and PRB-Bituminous blends evaluated were evaluated. PRB and PRB-Bituminous blends evaluated were evaluated. CyCurex® can rapidly remediate both moderate and high concentrations of oxidised and elemental mercury at short expose times as low as 1.1 seconds. CyCurex® can rapidly remediate both moderate and high concentrations of oxidised and elemental mercury at short expose times as low as 1.1 seconds. In a gas stream carrying a 1,000µg/M 3 total mercury and at least 34µg/M 3 of elemental mercury, CyCurex® was easily able to reduce the total mercury concentration by >90%, and it was able to deal with >75% of the elemental mercury within 1.1 to 2.2 seconds exposure.
