The report shows that, among solid sorbents, the most promising class for removal of SO2 from flue gases is cellulose containing materials such as wood, cotton, and newsprint. In particular, it was found that newsprint regenerably sorbs sulfur dioxide from synthetic flue gas streams at operating temperatures. Preliminary engineering designs and estimates of investment and operating costs for control of four sulfur dioxide contamination sources are presented. The process designed for utilizing cellulosics would employ a moving-bed of shredded paper as a sorbent of sulfur dioxide from flue gas streams. The sulfur dioxide is subsequently removed from the paper by thermal desorption for use as a feed stream in sulfuric acid manufacture. (Author)
