The report gives results of an evaluation of the technical and economic feasibility of using limestone scrubbing technology to control sinter plant emissions. Data from Soviet and Japanese sinter plants employing limestone scrubbing technology were used to develop a realistic design basis. A conceptual process design was developed and used to prepare economic estimates. Results of the process design indicate that control of sinter plant emissions by limestone scrubbing is technically feasible. Economic evaluations show that limestone scrubbing will increase the cost of producing sinter by about $1.82 per metric ton of product sinter for a standard sinter plant operation. For a sinter plant with a windbox gas recirculation system, the cost increase would be about $1.44 per metric ton of product sinter.
