Arthur L. Kohl, Richard B. Nielsen, in Gas Purification (Fifth Edition), Process Description. The overall effects of the double alkali process are identical to those of the limestone/ lime slurry processes—SO 2 is removed from the gas, lime or limestone is consumed, and a calcium sulfite or sulfate by-product is produced. The intermediate steps, however, are quite different and result. @article{osti_, title = {Flue gas desulfurization/The Colstrip flue gas cleaning system}, author = {Grimm, C. and Abrams, J.Z. and Raben, I.A. and Lamantia, C. and Leffmann, W.W. and Leffmann, W.W.}, abstractNote = {A flue gas cleaning system now being used on two Mw coal-fired boilers in Montana features a wet scrubbing system used for removing % of the particulates and %. @article{osti_, title = {Lime/limestone scrubber modifications: investigation of thiosulfate as an oxidation/scaling inhibitor.

FGD scrubber sludge is the wet solid residue generated from the treatment of these emissions. The wet scrubber discharge is an off-white slurry with a solids content in the range of 5 to 10 percent. Because FGD systems are usually accompanied by or combined with a fly ash removal system, fly ash is often incorporated into the FGD sludge. The PLB/lime treatment resulted in a decrease in sludge volume of 34% after 24 hours, with good filtration performance, and a final cake solids content of 22% versus 19% for the lime sludge. The sludge qualities were evaluated through settled sludge volume, filterability through a bench-scale filter press, and the moisture percentage in the filter cake. The PLB/lime treatment resulted in a decrease in sludge volume of 34 % after 24 hours, with good filtration performance, and a final cake solids content of 22 % versus 19 % for the. Currently, the chemical nature of sludges has been well characterized with respect to reuse as a fertilizer but ill-defined with respect to characterization for possible impact as a hazards waste. This situation exists because of the multitude of sludge types and the many analytical techniques which have been employed on these sludges.

Chemistry and technology of lime and limestone by Robert S. Boynton, , Wiley edition, in English - 2d : Dry scrubbing is a newer and relatively less established technological alternative to wet lime/limestone scrubbing systems. 75 Interest in developing dry scrubbing has been stimulated by perceived advantages over wet scrubbing. 76 The dry scrubbing design which EPA focused on during the rulemaking 77 removes sulfur dioxide in two stages which.
