This report is the first of three supplements updating the October-December 1980 report PB81-187791 and should be used in conjunction with it. The report, which is generated by a computerized data base system, presents a survey of operational and planned domestic utility flue gas desulfurization (FGD) systems, operational domestic particle scrubbers, and Japanese coal-fired utility boiler FGD installations. It summarizes information contributed by the utility industry, process suppliers, regulatory agencies, and consulting engineering firms. Domestic FGD systems are tabulated alphabetically by development status (operational, under construction, or in planning stages), utility company, process supplier, process and waste disposal practice. It presents data on boiler design, FGD system design, fuel characteristics, and actual performance. It includes unit by unit dependability parameters and discusses problems and solutions associated with the boilers and FGD systems. Process flow diagrams and FGD system economic data are appended.
