Abstract The report presents results of a study of application of flue gas desulfurization technology to steam-electric power plants and the rate at which systems may be installed. The report focuses on lime and limestone but also considers magnesium oxide and sodium based scrubbing processes. Factors to be considered in wide-scale application of flue gas cleaning processes include the capability and willingness of vendors to supply the systems, time requirements, labor availability, lead time equipment deliver, and the availability of capital and engineering construction services. Flue gas desulfurization process economics and cost estimates are presented showing how major factors including equipment requirements, plant load factor, plant operating life, mode of solid waste disposal, and byproduct revenues affect costs.
