The report presents a technical and economic comparison of the use of flue gas desulfurization, coal liquefaction, and coal gasification as a means of preventing SO2 emissions at coal-fired power plants. The report assesses the status of technology, process complexity, process flexibility, environmental effects, installation difficulties, energy conversion efficiency, manpower requirements, and economics of each approach to controlling SO2 as it would be applied to electric power plants. Three different flue gas desulfurization systems were evaluated as well as one coal liquefaction and one coal gasification processes. Two power plant cases are evaluated, an existing 500 MW plant operating at 60 percent load factor and a new 1,000 MW plant operating at 80 percent load factor.
