Contents Notes
In 1982-83, Peabody Process Systems, Inc. (PPSI) conducted pilot plant tests at the R.D. Green Station of Big Rivers Electric Corporation (BREC). PPSI's final report of the pilot testing included comparisons of the operating costs of a lime-based full-sized absorber, to a retrofit limestone system enhanced with dibasic acid (DBA) or adipic acid. The site specific changes required for BREC to convert their existing lime FGD system to a limestone system enhanced by DBA or adipic acid, and the costs of making such a change are described in this paper. Results of this analysis indicated that an annual cost savings of $2.6 million could be achieved by converting the existing BREC lime system to an adipic-acid-enhanced limestone system, and an annual savings of $3.1 million could be achieved by converting to a DBA-enhanced system.
