The report is a compilation of information on the current status of abatement technology used to control major air pollutants (including SO2, NOx, and particulates) in Japan. It focuses on flue gas desulfurization (FGD), combustion modifications (CMs), and selective catalytic reduction (SCR) of NOx. Information in this report was gathered from utility company representatives and FGD, CM, and SCR process developers, as well as from the author's research in this field. Current air pollution regulations in Japan, related problems, operational parameters of commercial FGD and SCR plants, FGD and SCR economics, and the author's evaluation of the processes also are described.
