This report is the first full compilation (not a supplement) since the December 1978 - January 1979 report. Because the next three reports are to be supplements, this issue should be retained for reference throughout the year. The report, which is generated by a computerized data base system, presents a survey of utility flue gas desulfurization (FGD) systems in the U.S. and Japan. It summarizes information contributed by the utility industry, process suppliers, regulatory agencies, and consulting engineering firms. Systems are tabulated alphabetically by development status (operational, under construction, or in planning stages), utility company, process supplier, process and waste disposal practice. It presents data on boiler design, FGD system design, fuel characteristics, and actual performance. It includes unit by unit dependability parameters and discusses problems and solutions associated with the boilers and FGD systems. Process flow diagrams and FGD system economic data are appended to the report.
