The results are reported of technical and economic evaluations of the feasibility of different SO2-control processes. In addition to process evaluations, studies were made of; the applicability of these processes to both power plants and SO2-control processes, and the impact SO2-control technology would have on emission reduction. Preliminary process designs and economic evaluations have been prepared for twelve different SO2-control processes. Investments are reported in millions of dollars for a 1,000 MW plant so the investment cost in dollars per Kilowatt has the same value. The operating costs are reported as dollars per ton of sulfur not emitted, as mills per Kilowatt-hour, and as a percent increase of power cost. Of the twelve processes evaluated, none can be ranked as commercially available at the present time. (Author)
