The report describes a non-deterministic probabilistic method that can be used to evaluate sulfur oxides abatement alternatives. The method is not restricted to gas scrubbing models, but can also handle clean fuel substitution processes. The method utilizes a Monte Carlo simulation approach which can treat fully developed cost models and also those which encompass a high level of uncertainty either in structure or in process parameters. The report presents impact assessment techniques which can be used to develop methodology for alternative future scenarios. A specific example, the Wellman-Allied process, is used to demonstrate the utility of simulation methodology.
