The report gives results of a 6-month study of flue gas desulfurization (FGD) technology conducted by an interagency team in 1977. The study was mandated by President Carter in his April 1977 National Energy Plan. The purpose of the study was to determine whether additional Federal funding would accelerate the commercialization and acceptance of FGD technology. The report concludes that FGD is the most viable short-term approach to meeting increased coal-use objectives of the National Energy Plan, and it identifies specific FGD research, development, and demonstration priorities. The report also presents a background of FGD technology (as of 1977) and the methodology used in the study to select the most promising FGD processes and subsystems. The appendices give detailed technical data on specific FGD technology.
