Estimates were prepared for typical sulfur dioxide scrubbing processing areas, indicating capital costs attributable to scrubber, reheat, ductwork and fans. The control processes studied were selected to provide a range of different type gas scrubbing contactors, viz., packed column, multi-stage spray column, and one which contains beds of hollow plastic spheres. The results are presented of cost breakdowns made for the following control processes: magnesia base (slurry scrubbing, regenerable SO2-H2SO4 by-product); wet limestone (slurry scrubbing, throwaway); citrate (solution scrubbing, regenerable, sulfur by-product); and ammonia scrubbing (solution scrubbing, regenerable, SO2-H2SO4 by-product).
