MEC - background

The IEA Clean Coal Centre has been running the Mercury Emissions from Coal (MEC) experts meeting annually since 2003 and in this time it has been held in Europe (Scotland, Poland and Slovenia), North America (Toronto), Asia (Tokyo), Australia (Newcastle, NSW) and South Africa (Kruger Gate, Mpumalanga). In May 2012, the meeting was held in Russia, in the fabulously historic city of St Petersburg.

The MEC workshop series was established to facilitate the interaction of international experts representing utilities, governmental bodies, research institutes and commercial industries, allowing discussion of how they can work together to address the problem of mercury emissions from coal combustion. The 2012 meeting gathered around 70 experts from 20 countries.
