REVIEW OF HANDLING AND USE OF FGD MATERIAL

sorbents. Wet FGD systems are currently installed on about 25% of the coal -fired utility generating capacity in the Uni ted States, representing about 15% of the number of coal - fired units ( 4). Spray dry scrubbers and sorbent injection installations are growing in use in the United States and Europe, especially on small units.

Duct Sorbent Injection - an overview | ScienceDirect Topics

Scrubbing of sorbent-like limestone/lime is the most common method followed in FGD plants. It is a catalytic chemical process for the removal of SO 2 produced during combustion. In this system, a sulfur compound combines with a calcium-containing sorbent, generally lime (CaO) or limestone (CaCO 3), to …

Air Pollution Control Technology Fact Sheet

Typical sorbent material is limestone, or lime. Li mestone is very inexpensive but control efficiencies for limestone systems are limited to appr oximately 90%. Lime is easier to manage on-site and has control efficiencies up to 95% but is significantly more cost ly (Cooper 2002). Proprietary sorbents with …

Furnace Sorbent Injection - an overview | ScienceDirect Topics

Limestone is the most commonly used sorbent as it is widely available and is inexpensive. In this process, SO 2 reacts with limestone to produce gypsum. In the wet FGD process, in general, >90% of the SO 2 is removed. In addition to SO 2, portions of the volatile trace metals and particles are also removed in the wet FGD process.

Evaluation of Dry Sorbents and Fabric Filtration for FGD

The valid com- parison of the dry sorbent/baghouse FGD system to the limestone scrubbing process required that both desulfurization processes use the same physical conditions and inputs (I.e., both were located at a site in Wyoming burning 1% sulfur coal with an ash content of 10%).

Dry Flue Gas Desulfurisation Technology - an overview ...

3.2.2.3 Furnace sorbent injection systems. Another dry FGD technology that was developed in the 1970s and 1980s involves injection of limestone or hydrated lime into the upper furnace; this process is often called furnace sorbent injection, or FSI. The injected sorbent is collected along with the fly ash in the existing ESP or fabric filter.

Flue Gas Desulfurization by Limestone and Hydrated Lime ...

Flue gas desulfurization (FGD) processes are usually categorized as wet and dry or semi-dry systems. In wet FGD processes flue gas is contacted with a slurry consisting of a sorbent in an aqueous medium, such that the flue gas is cooled to the adiabatic saturation temperature. Whereas, dry and semi-dry FGD processes involve injection of a

As a result of the large limestone deposits available in Poland, the low cost of reagent acquisition for the large-scale technological use and relatively well-documented processes of flue gas desulfurization (FGD) technologies based on limestone sorbent slurry, wet scrubbing desulfu-rization is a method of choice in Poland for flue gas

5. Emission Control Technologies - EPA

In wet FGD systems the polluted gas stream is brought into contact with a liquid alkaline sorbent (typically limestone) by forcing it through a pool of the liquid slurry or by spraying it with the liquid. In dry FGD systems the polluted gas stream is brought into contact with the alkaline sorbent in a semi-dry state through use of a spray dryer.
