Key Players

  • The major key players operating in the global mercury removal adsorbents include Pall Corporation, Johnson Matthey, Axens, Honeywell UOP, BASF SE, NUCON International Inc., UNICAT Catalyst Technologies, LLC., Calgon Carbon Corporation, Cabot Corporation, SLB
  • For instance, in June 2019, BASF SE launched a new mercury removal adsorbent Durasorb HG, which is used in wet conditions. The mercury removal adsorbents are installed in the LNG (liquefied natural gas) pre-treatment train for the protection of downstream equipment and materials from mercury contamination. In addition, Durasorb HG is a mixed metal oxide adsorbent that contains promoted and dispersed copper sulfide phase and is non-regenerable. In addition, BASF SE is one of the leading chemical companies which operates in six different segments such as plastics, functional solutions, chemicals, agriculture solutions, oil and gas, and performance products.

Global Mercury Removal Adsorbents Market - Impact of Coronavirus (Covid-19) Pandemic

The outbreak of COVID-19 had been negatively affected the global mercury removal adsorbents market. The manufacturers of mercury removal adsorbents stopped their production during the pandemic. The demand for mercury removal adsorbents from a number of end-use industries such as water treatment, chemicals, and oil and gas, among others shut down their manufacturing plants due to disruption in the supply chain of raw materials. Owing to the global severe lockdown, the transportation systems had also been impacted.. In addition, the lack of manpower due to strict rules regarding social distancing hampered the global mercury adsorbents market growth.
