Abstract
The paper discusses an investigation of the environmental advantages/disadvantages of absorbing SO2 onto combusted retorted oil shale. The objective of the program was to obtain more information in support of EPA's PSD (Prevention of Significant Deterioration) permitting decisions on sulfur control and to investigate whether emission of other pollutants such as NOx and trace elements might be significantly increased in the process. Based on pilot plant data obtained in the study, fluid-bed operating conditions are recommended to optimize SO2 and NOx control. In general, conditions that favor low SO2 emissions also favor low CO and trace hydrocarbon emissions, but do not favor low NOx emissions. The study indicates that the conditions chosen for the conceptual design are reasonable and (in most cases) conservative.
