Title: Sulfur oxides control technology series: Flue gas desulfurization. Wellman-Lord process. Summary report

Abstract

The Wellman-Lord flue gas desulfurization (FGD) process, is being studied by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as part of and extensive program of technology development in the area of flue gas desulfurization. In this regenerable process, sulfur dioxide (SO2) is removed from flue gases with a sodium sulfite scrubbing solution. The concentrated SO2 stream that is produced can be processed into elemental sulfur or sulfuric acid. The Industrial Environmental Research Laboratory (IERL), in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, is responsible for evaluating the reliability and cost effectiveness of FGD processes. The Wellman-Lord process is a proven, viable regenerable FGD system producing elemental sulfur. This report serves as a technical briefing of FGD control technologies for engineers, managers, and decision makers who require information about sulfur dioxide control alternatives. This report summarizes the Wellman-Lord FGD operation, and provides a basic understanding of the significant processes for a reader who is unfamiliar with FGD technology. All equations are in the un-ionized form to simplify the presentation.
