The report describes results of technical efforts in several areas relating to the development of the lime/limestone wet scrubbing process. It reviews a portion of the test plan for EPA's prototype test facility. It describes laboratory studies of key reaction steps, including lime and limestone dissolution rates and calcium sulfite and sulfate precipitation rates. It describes engineering and chemistry support for EPA-contracted pilot unit studies, including test program design, on-site sampling and chemical analysis of test samples, as well as engineering analysis of test results. It reports on chemical analysis support, including assistance with the analytical data system at EPA's prototype test facility.
