The Catalytic Chamber Process is aimed at solving one of our most pressing air pollution problems: the emission of enormous quantities of sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides into the atmosphere from the stacks of power plants burning fossil fuels. The process features the oxidation of SO2 to SO3 through the use of nitrogen dioxide as a homogenous, gas-phase, reactive catalyst in a manner similar to the old Lead Chamber Process. The objective was to: Confirm the technical feasibility of the Catalytic Chamber Process, and Obtain preliminary engineering design data necessary for process scale-up. A laboratory-scale investigation was made of the separate process stages and of an integrated 10 SCFM unit. Three major modifications were investigated. The sulfur dioxide oxidation and the nitric oxide oxidation were performed in separate stages; A high temperature scrubber was used; and A catalytic stripper was used to simultaneously remove the oxides of nitrogen from the scrubbing acid and oxidize them to nitrogen dioxide.
