Flue-gas desulfurization - Wikipedia

Methods. Since stringent environmental regulations limiting SO 2 emissions have been enacted in many countries, SO 2 is being removed from flue gases by a variety of methods. Common methods used: Wet scrubbing using a slurry of alkaline sorbent, usually limestone or lime, or seawater to scrub gases;; Spray-dry scrubbing using similar sorbent slurries;; Wet sulfuric acid process recovering ...

Air Pollution Control Technology Fact Sheet

Wet limestone scrubbing has high capital and operati ng cost due to the handling of liquid reagent and waste. Nonetheless, it is the preferred process for coal-fired electric utility power plants burning coal due to the low cost of limestone and SO 2 control efficiencies from 90% up …

Use of limestone for SO2 removal from flue gas in the ...

Hydrated lime is normally used as SO 2 sorbent in spray dry scrubbers, whereas limestone is considered unreactive under conditions prevailing in such a system. However, limestone is more easily available and several times cheaper than hydrated lime. We tried to use limestone to remove SO 2 from flue gas in the semidry FGD process with a powder-particle spouted bed.

Deep neural network-based optimal selection and blending ...

To address these challenges, using waste seashells to absorb SO 2 as high-grade limestone substitutes is a proper solution for a wet flue gas desulfurization system. As waste seashells have a CaCO 3 content of 95.6–98 wt%, which is higher than that of high-grade limestone, they are a resource that can be utilized as an SO 2 absorbent. Recycling of waste seashells may …

DEFINITION OF TERMS 3.1 Sulphur(S) IJSER

3.5 Calcinations Process . The process of heating a substance to a high temperature but below the melting or fusing point, causing loss of moisture, reduction or oxidation, and dissociation into simpler sub-stances. The term was originally applied to the method of driving off carbon dioxide from limestone to obtain lime (cal-cium oxide).

Wet Flue Gas Desulfurization with Lime/Limestone Slurry

The essential process stages of this wet desulphurisation method are: Absorbent preparation and dosing. Removal of SOx (HCl, HF) Dewatering and conditioning of the product. In this method, limestone (CaCO3) or quicklime (CaO) can be used as the absorbent. The selection of an additive which can be added dry or as a slurry is made on the basis of ...

Deep neural network-based optimal selection and blending ...

In wet flue gas desulfurization, the resource depletion of high-grade limestone, used as conventional SOX absorbent, is becoming serious for SOX capture and utilization. This paper proposes optimal selection and blending ratio of waste seashells as an alternative to high-grade limestone depletion using a deep neural network-based surrogate model.
