ABSTRACT

Various heavy metals contained in fuel are released to environment at fossil fuels use. Mercury
has come to front of public interest recently. The North West Bohemia region is an area with
high potential concentration of Hg emission sources (open pit brown coal mines) and large
combustion facilities (power and heat stations) combusting fossil fuels. Mercury is taken for one
of the most environment loading matters because its stability and bioaccumulation potential of
itself and its compounds. More detailed regulation in the frame of the EU legislation is under
consideration as well. Main goal of the project in solution is to collect necessary range of
knowledge of Hg in fuels, Hg redistribution data at high temperature combustion, to assess
expertly the credibility of Hg information and data and relevance of analytic methods of Hg
content measurement in emissions.
