The Wellman-Lord flue gas desulfurization (FGD) process is currently the most recognized regenerable system using soluble sodium sulfite as the scrubbing reagent. Davy Powergas developed the process during the 1960's; the first commercial installation was in 1970 on a sulfuric acid plant. The process has since been applied widely on acid plants, Claus plants, and oil-fired boilers and recently has been installed on a coal-fired boiler. It has treated flue gas with SO2 concentrations from 1000 to 30,000 ppm at 90 percent or better availability.
