The document presents an analysis of the costs and cost effectiveness of SO2 control for steam generating units firing mixtures of sulfur-bearing fossil fuels (coal or oil) with nonsulfur-bearing fuels (wood, solid waste, natural gas, etc.). The incremental cost effectiveness of an alternative control level requiring a percent reduction in SO2 emissions over an alternative control level based on the use of low sulfur fuel was examined for various boiler sizes, regional locations, and fuel mixtures. The incremental cost effectiveness increases as decreasing amounts of coal or oil are burned in relation to nonsulfur-bearing fuels. The report also examines the costs associated with allowing versus not allowing emission credits based on the dilution of the sulfur-bearing fuel heat input with that from nonsulfur-bearing fuels.
