Abstract The report updates to 1983 a 1978-base, computerized marketing evaluation of sulfur and H2SO4 as flue gas desulfurization (FGD) byproducts from U.S. coal-burning power plants. Least-costs of compliance were calculated using comparisons of clean fuel with 50 cents and 70 cents/million Btu premiums, limestone scrubbing, and scrubbing systems with byproduct sulfur and H2SO4 production. Market potential of sales to sulfur-burning H2SO4 plants was also determined. At the 50 cent premium, H2SO4 production was the least-cost method at five plants, four of which had combined sales of 800,000 tons/yr. At the 70 cent premium, H2SO4 production was the least-cost method at 26 plants, 7 of which had sales totaling 1.2 million tons. New boilers coming online by 1983 accounted for 60% of the sales. Market potential was relatively insensitive to sulfur price. Sulfur production was not selected at any plant, but reduction of total FGD costs by 3-25% would make it competitive with sulfur delivered from Port Sulphur at 16 plants with a total production of 266,000 tons. Results indicate the need of a longer time projection and continued updating of the model data bases.
