This report is the first full compilation (not a supplement) since the October-December 1979 report (EPA-600/7-80-029a). Because the next three reports are to be supplements, this issue should be retained for reference throughout the year. The report, which is generated by a computerized data base system, presents a survey of operational and planned domestic utility flue gas desulfurization (FGD) systems, terminated domestic utility FGD systems, operational domestic particle scrubbers, and Japanese coal-fired utility boiler FGD installations. It summarizes information contributed by the utility industry, process suppliers, regulatory agencies, and consulting engineering firms. Domestic FGD 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 FGD systems. Process flow diagrams and FGD system economic data are appended. Because of its length, Section 3 of this report is published as a separate volume; the remainder of the report is in Volume I PB81-187783. The report Front Matter and Appendices B, C, and D are repeated here to assist the reader.
