The paper discusses the commercial development of the advanced silicate (ADVACATE) process for flue gas desulfurization (FGD). This commercialization follows several years of bench-scale sorbent development, pilot plant process optimization, and field pilot evaluation. Results are presented showing the importance of silica dissolution in preparation of calcium silicates. Pilot and field optimization and evaluation shows excellent potential for over 90% SO2 control at half the cost of conventional wet FGD processes. Projected costs and commercialization plans are presented.
