MERCURY RECOVERY SERVICES (MRS) is an environmental technology company specializing in the removal and recovery of mercury.
MRS is a wholly owned subsidiary of Pittsburgh
Mineral & Environmental Technology, Inc. (PMET); headquartered in
New Brighton, Pennsylvania, U.S.A.
Recognized worldwide as a leader in the field of mercury removal and recycling, MRS is dedicated to providing safe, cost-effective, environmentally sound services and technology to companies facing mercury contamination and emission problems.
MRS offers a wide range services that include:
Comprehensive materials characterization,
Equipment sale or lease,
Technology licensing, and
Process optimization and technical support.
Regardless of the services that MRS provides, our goal is to:
Provide mobile and fixed site processing solutions,
Operate as a mercury recycler, NOT a hazardous waste Transfer,
Storage & Disposal TSD facility,
Eliminate Hg based environmental liability, and
Provide a ZERO waste stream solution.
MRS leadership position in the processing of mercury-containing materials results from its exclusive use of its patented
(MR2) Process, a medium-temperature thermal process that has been designated Best Demonstrated Available Technology (BDAT) by the U.S. Environmental Agency and proven on a commercial scale to reduce mercury to insignificant levels and recover 99% pure metallic mercury for reuse.
Due to the high efficiency of mercury removal, recovery, and subsequent recycling, use of the
MR2 process eliminates the lingering liability normally associated with the disposal of hazardous wastes which is inherent in competitive processes.
expanded its technology platforms to include the patented Mercury Emissions
ReCovery & Sequestration (MERCS)
process. This technology
recovers the Hg from flue gas while regenerating the Powder Activated Carbon
(PAC) for reuse in the Activated Carbon Injection (ACI) system.
