Abstract : This report analyzes and evaluates existing flue gas desulfurization (FGD) techniques which could be used on Army boilers. Only those processes which are proven (in use for two or more years) or which have potential for use on Army-sized boilers in the near future are considered. In addition, this report presents guidelines to help Army installations select FGD processes appropriate to their needs.
