The report presents data on sulfur oxide (SOx) emissions from five major source groups: utility plants, industrial boilers, non-ferrous smelters, sulfuric acid plants, and sulfur (Claus) plants. For all source groups studied, the bulk of the SOx emissions comes from a relatively small number of the largest plants. The report also includes evaluations of several different sulfur control system, including stack gas scrubbing (wet limestone process and Wellman/Allied system), substitute natural gas, solvent refined coal, Lurgi gasification with a combined power cycle, and pressurized fluidized-bed combustion with a combined power cycle. Process and cost models and/or economics are presented for each system. Cost models for the stack gas scrubbing processes were applied to existing utility plants in the U.S. and the results analyzed.
