The report describes the status of desulfurization technology in Japan up to January 1975, with emphasis on the recovery of SO2 in lime/limestone based processes. It discusses the current status of desulfurization technologies, including hydrodesulfurization of oil, decomposition of residual oil, gasification of coal and oil, and flue gas desulfurization (FGD). Major Japanese FGD processes are examined in detail. Technical and economic aspects of the systems are discussed, and the processes are evaluated for potential U.S. application. Principal by-products of the various systems are discussed. The report also contains background information on energy usage, fuel resources, and projected pollutant abatement requirements in Japan.
