The proceedings document the 1991 SO2 Control Symposium, held December 3-6, 1991, in Washington, DC, and jointly sponsored by the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI), the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). The symposium focused attention on recent improvements in conventional SO2 control technologies, emerging processes, and strategies for complying with the Clean Air Act Amendments (CAAA) of 1990. It provided an international forum for the exchange of technical and regulatory information on SO2 control technology. More than 800 representatives of 20 countries from government, academia, flue gas desulfurization (FGD) process suppliers, equipment manufacturers, engineering firms, and utilities attended. In all, 50 U.S. utilities and 10 utilities in other countries were represented. In 11 technical sessions, speakers presented 111 technical papers on development, operation, and commercialization of wet and dry FGD, clean coal technologies, and combined sulfur oxide/nitrogen oxide (SOx/NOx) processes. Volume 5 covers sessions on commercial FGD designs and by-product utilization.
