Wet limestone gas desulphurization technology

The wet limestone technology; because of its high efficiency, simplicity and reliability; is the most widely used technology for flue gas purification in power generation  industry.

In collaboration with the Institute of Nonferrous Metals in  Gliwice we have implemented a  variant  of the technology specially designed  for treatment of gas with a particularly high content of SO2 ( up to 1 % ).

Range of applications

  • highly SO2 laden flue gas from power plants,
  • waste incinerators,
  • non-ferrous metals metallurgy

Semi-dry flue gas desulphurization ( “DRY SCRUBBING” )

Semi-dry FGD “DRY SCRUBBING”, characterized by moderate  investment expenditures and relatively low operating cost, in many applications is optimal technology for gas purification for middle-size power plants.

Our reference list includes application of this process for removal of acid pollutants from  from combustion gases and other waste industrial gases.

Range of application

  • moderately SO2 laden flue gas from power plants
  • waste incinerators
  • selected non-ferrous metallurgical processes

Dry flue gas desuplhurisation systems

Dry scrubbing process (injection of dry lime or sodium sorbent into gas stream) offers  less expensive alternative for the more efficient wet and semi-dry methods, It is recommended for applications wherein removal efficiency is not critical.

Depending on the application, hydrated lime or sodium compounds can be used a SO2 sorbent.
