The results are presented of a study which was undertaken to provide a basis for assessing the costs and effectiveness of alternative sulfur dioxide control systems for emissions of fossil fuel combustion from power generating facilities. The study attempts to provide a set of nomographs which would allow rapid and accurate assessment of these control alternatives. Sulfur emissions can be controlled by either stack gas control processes, desulfurization of oil or coal, or the burning of naturally-occurring low sulfur fuels. The economic aspects involved are the capital and operating costs of stack gas and desulfurization facilities and the incremental costs of purchasing and shipping low sulfur fuels. The most current technical and economic data were compiled and evaluated for six stack gas processes. The costs per ton of coal or per barrel of oil were determined given a variety of conditions. The cost of transporting bulk reactants or low sulfur fuels can be significant when studying control economics. (Author)
