The report gives results of an evaluation of the market potential for sulfur and sulfuric acid byproducts of combustion in power plant boilers. (Air quality regulations require control of SOx emissions from power plant boilers. Recovery of sulfur in useful form would avoid waste disposal and conserve natural sulfur and natural gas used to mine sulfur.) A cost model was developed to estimate the least-cost compliance method from three alternatives: selecting a clean fuel strategy, selecting a limestone-throwaway scrubbing technology, or selecting a sulfuric acid or sulfur-producing scrubbing technology. For plants where production of byproducts was the economic choice, a market simulation model was used to evaluate distribution of byproducts in competition with existing markets. Significant amounts of sulfuric acid could be produced from SOx in power plant flue gas and sold in competitive markets.
