The report describes flue gas desulfurization (FGD) technologies, assesses their applications, and characterizes their performance. Additionally, it describes some of the advancements that have occurred in FGD technologies. Finally, it presents an analysis of the costs associated with applications of limestone forced oxidation, lime spray dryer, and magnesium-enhanced lime FGD processes. The information presented should be useful to evaluators of FGD technology applications. (NOTE: Sulfur dioxide (SO2) scrubbers may be used by electricity generating units to meet the requirements of Phase II of the Acid Rain SO2 Reduction Program. Additionally, the use of scrubbers can result in reduction of mercury and particulate emissions. It is timely, therefore, to review the commerically available FGD technologies that have an established record of performance.)
