Abstract—Mercury is present as trace element in coal. When the coal is burnt in thermal power plants, the mercury available in coal is released. Once released, the mercury is either evaporated in the atmosphere; some part is trapped in pollution control instruments like electrostatic precipitator, bag, etc., and the rest goes with the bottom and fly ash. The small level of mercury can be tolerated without much harmful effects; however when there is concentration of industries at one place, the concentration level increases and the cumulative effect has a devastating effect on the humans. The irony is that the impact of today's emissions is visible after a very long time say 20-25 years. Thus, while selecting the location of thermal power plants, their clubbing at one place should be reviewed in light of pollution caused by mercury apart from other factors. 

Index Terms—mercury, coal, thermal power plants
