The report documents development, demonstration, and control activities currently in progress in Japan on Japanese processes pertaining to SO2 recovery from waste gases. It also discusses hydrodesulfurization of heavy oils and gasification desulfurization of heavy and residual oils in Japan. It presents process description, state of development, advantages, disadvantages, economics, and flow sheets for 28 processes (4 dry and 24 wet) for SO2 removal and recovery from waste gases, with less detailed information on 9 other processes. The trend in waste gas treatment is from dry to wet processes yielding salable byproducts. Most plants built in Japan for the hydrodesulfurization of heavy oil utilize the indirect, rather than the direct process. Four processes are described for the gasification desulfurization of heavy oil and residual oil: the Ube process is included in detail, with lesser information on the other three processes.
