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 PPG Industries' Barberton plant. 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. This plant operates eight coal-fired boilers to provide electric power and process steam for production of chlorine, caustic soda, hydrogen peroxide and silica pigments. After collecting necessary site and process specific data by means of a plant visit, the technical feasibility and cost of flue gas desulfurization by lime, double alkali, and Wellman-Lord scrubbing were evaluated for full capacity (excess electricity sold to a utility) and for roughly 50 percent capacity (enough electricity to maintain normal plant operations).
