In support of a program to review New Source Performance Standards for sulfur dioxide emissions from coal-fired steam generators, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is preparing estimates of the costs of flue gas desulfurization (FGD) systems. The program is designed to determine the costs of FGD at various efficiencies, regulation levels, and coal sulfur levels with particular emphasis on the cost impacts of averaging time. EPA has contracted with PEDCo Environmental, Inc. to develop costs of lime FGD systems for alternate regulation levels and coal sulfur levels. Model steam-electric generating plants were used as a basis for estimating these costs. In section 2 the methodology and assumptions used in the analysis are presented. Section 3 presents the results of the study.
