New SO2 emission regulations in the U.S. and EU require some utility and power producers to retrofit new flue gas desulfurization (FGD) units to existing plants. Amec Foster Wheeler’s Dual Flow Tray Technology can provide a cost effective solution for both new and upgrades to existing wet FGD plants to achieve new these new emission standards.

Acid gas removal efficiency (mainly SO2) in a power plant’s limestone-based wet flue gas desulfurization (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.
