The paper gives results of a review of commercially available flue gas desulfurization (FGD) technologies that have an established record of full-scale performance. Data on worldwide FGD applications reveal that wet FGD technologies have been used at most installations. Among the 668 worldwide FGD technology installations completed through 1998, 544 (or 81%) have wet FGD systems. The SO2 removal performance of scrubbers has been reviewed. Data reflect that most wet limestone and lime spray drying installations appear to be capable of about 90% SO2 removal. Advanced, state-of-the-art wet scrubbers can provide SO2 removal in excess of 95%. Costs associated with wet limestone forced oxidation (LSFO) and lime spray dryer (LSD) technologies are analyzed with state-of-the-art cost models. Analyses of LSFO and LSD capital costs indicate an economy of scale over a range of unit size considered.
