Abstract The paper describes the most recent results from the Limestone Injection Multistage Burner (LIMB) program, results from the wall-fired demonstration. Tests were conducted to determine the efficacy of commercial calcium hydroxide--Ca(OH)2--supplied by Marblehead Lime Co. and of calcium-lignosulfonate-modified Ca(OH)2. Performance of the modified sorbent was slightly better than that of the commercial sorbent. Both sorbents easily provided 50 percent capture of SO2 at a calcium to sulfur molar ratio of 2.0 or less, which is the goal of the LIMB program. The paper also lists the major conclusions from the LIMB program to date.
