The report gives results of an evaluation of SO2 emission control strategies for major coal burning boilers in Iowa, considering options such as using low-sulfur Eastern and Western coals, mechanical coal cleaning, and flue gas desulfurization (FGD). Major utility boilers were surveyed, probable coal sources were determined, and alternate transportation routes were defined. Coal cleaning plant and FGD design studies were performed. Cost data were generated and a linear computer program model was developed to determine minimum cost strategies for meeting emission levels corresponding to no-control and control to 5.0, 3.1 and 1.2 lb SO2/MM Btu. For the cases studied, FGD was most cost effective only for the most restrictive emission level (1.2 lb/MM Btu) and when the supply of low-sulfur coal was limited. Importing low-sulfur Eastern and Western coals or combinations of mechanical coal cleaning and low-sulfur coal import gave the lowest cost for all other cases.
