The objectives of this study were to determine the best available control technology (BACT) for control of sulfur emissions from oil shale processing facilities and then to develop a design for a mobile slipstream pilot plant that could be used to test and demonstrate that technology. The work conducted included an in-depth evaluation of available gas characterization data from all major oil shale development operations in the United States. Data gaps and inconsistencies were identified and corrected where possible through working with the developers and/or researchers in the field. From the gas characterization data, duty requirements were defined for the sulfur removal systems. Based on this information, Stretford gas sweeting technology was recommended, and the design of a 1000 CFM pilot plant was completed.
