The report gives key findings of a program in which the U.S. EPA participated, sponsored by the Umwelbundesamt (UBA), the German equivalent of the EPA. The UBA program included retrofitting the 700 MWe Weiher III utility boiler of the Saarbergwerke AG with staged-mixing burners for NOx control, and sorbent injection for SOx control. The program was considerably reduced in scope because of restrictions placed on the utility by local environmental officials concerning the classification of the fly ash generated in the process. During the limited testing period, SO2 emissions were reduced 8-64% depending on Ca/S molar ratio and other operating conditions. An analysis of the test results suggests that the use of more reactive sorbents could increase SO2 removals to 30 and 60% at a Ca/S ratio of 2, for limestone and calcium hydroxide, respectively.
