Contents Notes
A conceptual design and cost estimate, based on information available at the beginning of 1987, was done for six cases of a retrofit of the E-SO[subscript x] process to a utility. The annualized cost ranged from $301 to $378 per ton of SOb2s removed. The generic cost basis, used for other cost estimates, was used in this study and applied to a 500 MWe utility burning eastern medium sulfur (2.5%) bituminous coal. Capital costs compare very favorably with other retrofit SOb2s removal technologies. Sorbent or reagent cost is the largest single components of the costs.
