The effectiveness and economics of fluidized bed combustion boilers in pollution abatement and steam/power generation have been evaluated. A 250,000 lb/hr coal-fired, factory-fabricated, industrial boiler has been designed along with all of its auxiliaries. Utility boilers have also been designed. Overall capital and operating costs have been estimated for both 300 and 600 megawatt plants. The pressurized fluidized bed combustion boiler operating in a combined cycle power plant appears most effective in meeting projected emission standards and in reducing total SO2, NOx, and particulate emissions, and most economical in power generation. A fluidized bed oil gasification-desulfurization system has also been designed and evaluated as an add-on unit for reducing SO2 emissions from utility boilers burning high-sulfur oils. The estimated capital cost of such a unit is presented.
