The report gives procedures for estimating the capital costs and annualized operating costs for five flue gas desulfurization (FGD) systems: lime, wet limestone, magnesium oxide, Wellman-Lord, and double alkali. Two methods are given for calculating the costs for the five systems: a detailed, flexible nomograph procedure, and a rapid equation procedure. All items that affect the capital and annualized operating costs of FGD systems in these estimating procedures are identified. Costs estimated by the procedures are compared with actual costs incurred by FGD system operators. Any differences between the estimated and actual costs are accounted for; the estimating procedures are modified when necessary.
