A nano-sized iron loaded ZSM-5 zeolite (Fe/ZSM-5) catalyst was firstly used to activate (NH4)2S2O8 solution for the simultaneous removal of multi-pollutant from flue gas. The simultaneous removal efficiencies 100% of SO2, 72.6% of NO and 93.4% of Hg° were achieved under the condition that the catalyst dose was 0.8 g/L, concentration, pH and temperature of (NH4)2S2O8 solution were 0.03 mol/L, 5 and 65 °C, respectively. The stability of catalyst was checked by a continuous test, proving that the catalytic activity was maintained for 4 h and the leached iron reached low levels. Based on the catalyst characterizations, product analysis and literatures, the removal mechanism was speculated preliminarily, during which, OH and SO4- played key roles for oxidizing NO and Hg° into NO3- and Hg2+.
