SDA and CFB Scrubbers – Two High Value Solutions to meet MATS, RH, and CSAPR

Amec Foster Wheeler, AFW, Webinar, Free

OVERVIEW

REQUEST FOR ACCESS FORM BELOW

U.S. Regulations affecting existing coal, biomass, and industrial power plants emitting more than 25 tons per year of total hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) are slated to take effect between 2015 and 2018. The Mercury and Air Toxics Standards (MATS), Regional Haze (RH), and the Cross State Air Pollution Rule (CSAPR) will require investments in new and retrofit air quality control system (AQCS) equipment for controlling emissions of mercury, non-mercury metal, acid gases, PM, NOx and SO2.

Spray Dryer Absorber (SDA) and CFB Scrubber (CFBS) technologies present two high value solutions for power plants to meet MATS, RH, and CSAPR regulations.

Webinar Highlights

This informative webinar, presented by Matthew Fischer and Greg Darling of Amec Foster Wheeler, will provide a regulatory summary, assess SDA and CFBS technologies, and take your questions.

Specific discussion areas include:

  • The timetable for U.S. regulations covering emissions (MATS, RH, CSAPR)
  • Design features, benefits and advantages of SDA and CFBS systems
  • Technical, operational, and performance comparison between SDA and CFBS

In addition, this webinar will address several commonly asked questions such as:

  • What are the multi-pollutant capture capabilities for SDA and CFBS equipment
  • What is the typical lead-time for design and supply of SDA and CFBS equipment
  • What is the difference in the installed cost for SDA and CFBS equipment
  • What are the differences in operation and maintenance costs between the technologies
  • How can next generation two-fluid SDA nozzles improve performance over rotary/older two-fluid nozzles
  • Typical MW capacity range that can be addressed with a single absorber vessel (SDA and CFBS) 

The webinar will cover pros and cons of the different technologies to help you make informed decisions concerning new or retrofit FGD alternatives. Questions from attendees will be answered by the presenters at the end of the webinar.
