PROCESS ECONOMICS PROGRAM SRI INTERNATIONAL Menlo Park, California Abstract Process Economics Program Report No. 63B SULFUR DIOXIDE REMOVAL FROM FLUE GASES.   Wet type flue gas desulfurization (FGD) using lime or limestone is popular because of its operational simplicity and the availability of lime and limestone. Seawater FGD (SWFGD) utilizes the.   Wang K H, Biochini R J, Legatski L K, Sodium-limestone double alkali flue gas desulfurization method[P], United States Patent, 4, , Wilkinson P M, Doldersum B, Cramers P H et al., The kinetic of uncatalyzed sodium sulfite oxidationfJ]. Chem Eng Sci, 48(5): Wu Z B, Liu Y, Tan T E, Study of dual-alkali FGD. Limestone, constituted mainly by calcium carbonate, is widely utilized in Flue Gas Desulfurization (FGD) processes because of the ability to capture the sulfur as sulfate salts. The evaluation of limestone reactivity is therefore a key aspect for FGD process design and plant operation.

  Wet limestone FGD system is capable of removing SO 2 with efficiencies from 92% to 98%.. Wet lime and magnesium-lime FGD systems. Lime scrubbing uses CaO, usually 90%, to remove SO 2 from the gaseous stream. Lime is more reactive than limestone slurry, but it is more Magnesium Enhanced Lime (MEL) process is a variation of the lime process that .

Economic Evaluation of Flue Gas Desulfurization Systems;. Flue Gas Desulfurization. Flue gas desulfurization (FGD) is a very common method for gas claning adopted in a gas processing plant. In this process, the flue gas with acid vapors is scrubbed to remove it as a by-product. Most of the FGD processes use alkali to scrub the flue gas. Many designers of FGD adopt the limestone gypsum process.
