The latest Mercury and multi-pollutant emissions from coal workshop (MEC12) was held in the fantastic Kruger Gate Hotel, Mpumalanga, South Africa from 28 February - 3 March 2017. The event combined a one-day workshop on Energy Efficiency and Emission Challenges for South African and neighbouring African regions (co-hosted by the US State Department) with the three-day 12th annual Mercury Emissions from Coal workshop, co-hosted by UNEP, DEAT and Eskom, which encompasses a more multi-pollutant ethos. Both meetings considered emissions of all micro-pollutants to air, not just mercury.
The Mercury Emissions from Coal (MEC) workshop is an annual IEA Clean Coal Centre event. Papers from previous workshops can be downloaded from the links below.
