Contents Notes
Manual describes a combined coal-cleaning and flue gas desulfurization (FGD) computerized design and cost-estimated model & gives detailed procedures for using it. All inputs and outputs are described as well as the various options available. Design and economic premises are included. The model produces design performance criteria and estimates of capital investments and annual revenue requirements for a physical coal-cleaning & a limestone or lime FGD system, either separately or as a combined emission control system. Material balances and breakdowns of costs by processing area for each system as well as an equipment list of the FGD system are provided. In addition, the model supplies an analysis of some economic benefits and penalties that accrue from the use of cleaned coal in a power plant. The primary use of the model is expected to be for projecting comparative economics of coal-cleaning and limestone or lime FGD systems in combination or as separate systems.
