This document is a resource document for the development of Federal standards of performance for control of sulfur dioxide (SO2) emissions for new industrial boilers. Various precombustion, combustion modification, and post combustion control technologies are identified with respect to each technology's applicability to industrial boilers, development status, and factors affecting performance. Emissions data for each technology are also presented. Post-combustion technologies examined include wet flue gas desulfurization (FGD) systems (sodium, dual alkali, lime, limestone) and dry processes (spray drying FGD, dry alkali injection, electron-beam irradiation). Combustion modification approaches examined include fluidized bed combustion, limestone injection multistage burners, and coal/limestone pellets. Precombustion approaches include physical coal cleaning, coal gasification, coal-liquid mixtures, and coal liquefaction.
