- Conventional flue gas cleanup technologies have been used for many years at electric utility and large industrial boiler sites for control of sulfur dioxide (SO₂) and particulate matter (PM). Nitrogen oxides (NOₓ) control at the mandated US emission levels has generally been met through combustion modification techniques. Pending legislation is expected to require the retrofit of many additional US installations with SO₂ controls and may also require greater reduction of NOₓ emissions. Several research efforts have recently been directed at this objective with a primary emphasis on combining NOₓ and SO₂ control. This paper reviews both integrated wet and dry scrubbing technologies that have undergone research and development efforts and that are particularly applicable to retrofits. The discussion will focus on their performance potential and developmental status. Particulate control devices are also considered since they can contribute significantly to NOₓ/SO₂ removal. 13 refs., 9 figs.
