The report gives results of an assessment of coal-fired industrial fluidized-bed boilers (FBBs) to estimate the impact, on boiler cost and performance, of alternative control levels for SOx, NOx, and particulate emissions. Base industrial FBB conceptual designs are presented, and the cost, boiler plant energy efficiency, and environmental performance are estimated as a function of boiler size, coal characteristics, sorbent properties, and boiler design and operating conditions.
