The report describes the status of SO2 abatement technology for stationary sources in Japan as of June 1976. It presents the current status of desulfurization technologies including hydrodesulfurization of oil, decomposition of residual oil, gasification of coal and oil, and flue gas desulfurization (FGD). It examines the major Japanese FGD processes with respect to their applications, performance, economics, major technical problems, developmental status, byproducts, and raw materials. It also contains background information on energy usage, fuel resources, ambient concentration of pollutants, and emission regulations in Japan. It describes processes for the simultaneous removal of SOx and NOx from flue gases. It presents a comparative evaluation of flue gas cleaning technologies in the U.S. and Japan.
