New SO2 emission regulations in the US and EU require some utility and power producers to retrofit new flue gas desulfurization units to existing plants. Michael T Hoydick and Hans Jansson discuss cost-effective solutions to achieve these new emission standards.

Acid gas removal efficiency (mainly SO2) in a power plant's limestone-based wet flue gas desulphurization (WFGD) system absorber is governed by two processes: the absorption of SO2 via gas/liquid contact and the rate at which the scrubbing liquor neutralizes the liquid phase acids collected. Improving either process generally enhances SO2 capture.
