Abstract Test results show that adding adipic acid to the limestone slurry significantly improved the SO sub 2 removal efficiency of the FGD system. Limited baseline data on operations with limestone only indicated a performance level of 55% SO sub 2 removal. Adding about 2200 ppM of adipic acid to the limestone scrubbing systems, the unit's level of performance increased to an average of 94.3% SO sub 2 removal which was maintained within a standard deviation of 2.2% over a 30-day test period during which boiler load was 70 to 130 million Btu/hr and gas throughput varied 300%.
