The report is the last of three supplements updating the December 1978-January 1979 report (EPA-600/7-79-022c) and should be used in conjunction with it. The report was generated by a new computerized data base system and differs from those of the previous series in that the scope of design data for operating FGD systems is vastly expanded, section formats are revised somewhat, and a new section includes operational particulate scrubbers. The report gives a survey of utility flue gas desulfurization (FGD) systems in the U.S. It summarizes information contributed by the utility industry, process suppliers, regulatory agencies, and consulting engineering firms. 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 the FGD systems. Process flow diagrams and FGD system economic data are appended to the report.
