The report reviews and evaluates a number of absorption-based SO2 control systems and the application of these control systems to those U.S. primary copper smelters which generate weak SO2-containing gas streams. Capital and operating cost relationships have been developed for each specific process, covering a range of gas flows and SO2 concentrations. Separate general costs for gas pretreatment and the end-of-the-line SO2 utilization facilities (i.e., sulfuric acid, elemental sulfur, and liquid SO2 plants) are also provided. The 13 U.S. primary copper smelters which currently still generate weak SO2 streams have been reviewed with reference to their current operation and active programs in hand to control or eliminate weak SO2 streams. Appropriate SO2 control processes have been matched with the individual smelters and related capital and operating costs have been developed from the earlier established cost relationships.
