This report presents an evaluation by the GCA Corporation, GCA/Technology Division, of technological feasibility and cost of complying with the proposed Ohio sulfur dioxide regulation (40 FR 52410, November 10, 1975) at the Standard Oil Company of Ohio's Lima Refinery. The final USEPA Sulfur Dioxide Control Strategy for the State of Ohio Technical Support Documents, Vol. I and II, (EPA 905/2-76-002) may be obtained from NTIS. After collecting necessary site and process specific data by means of a plant visit, it was determined that the only source not meeting the proposed regulation was the Claus sulfur recovery plant. For this plant, the technical feasibility and cost of compliance using the Beavon, IFP-150, IFP-1500, Shell Claus off-gas treating (SCOT), sulfreen, and Wellman-Lord processes for desulfurization of the tail gases were evaluated.
