The standard will provide users with a method for determining the total bromide content of powdered activated carbon. These powdered activated carbons are typically used to remove mercury from flue gas.
The standard can be used by PAC manufacturers and users of brominated activated carbons in the coal-fired power plant field. The standard is needed in order to provide the industry with a standardized way of measuring bromide content, especially when carbon bromination techniques vary and may show different levels of bromination with different analytical techniques.
