Various kinds of air pollutants including SO 2 , NO x , HF, HCl and heavy metals are emitted from industrial boiler & furnace. Synergic removal of these pollutants in one system is considered a valuable option in terms of low investment and simple system. Herein, urea-based solution was used to simultaneously remove SO 2 , NOx, fluoride and heavy metals (Hg 0 , Cd 2 +, Pb 2 +, Ni 2+ , etc.). Urea ((NH 2 ) 2 CO) is a slightly alkaline reagent with a strong reducing capacity. Compared with other absorption solutions, urea is a cheap and non-toxic reactant and can be obtained easily. Meanwhile, a small amount of additives (oxidant and stabilizer) were introduced into urea solution for enhancing the absorption efficiency of these pollutants. Generally, a removal efficiency of 95% SO 2 , 50% NO x , 85% HCl, 85% HF and 95% heavy metals was simultaneously obtained in the bench-scale study.
