The report gives results of a survey of a flue gas desulfurization system, utilizing the Chemico/Basic MgO-SO2 removal/recovery process, that has been retrofitted to handle approximately half of the exhaust gas from the 190 MW unit 3 at Potomac Electric Power Company's Dickerson Station. The system was installed at a cost of SO.5 million. The boiler burns 2 percent sulfur coal and is equipped with a 94 percent efficient electrostatic precipitator. A single two-stage scrubber/absorber is used. The liquor streams for the two stages are separate, both operating in a closed-loop mode. Magnesium oxide (MgO) is regenerated off-site.
