  • Investments in 2008 had been inflated by spending on extraordinary items, such as flue-gas desulfurization scrubbers at Scottish Power's Longannet coal-fired power plant, Mr. Galán said.

  • Although carbon capture is possible at power plants through flue-gas scrubbing, designing millions of cars, trucks, and trains to capture CO2 from their exhaust streams is simply not practical.

  • A mid-range estimate is 20 teragrams of sulphur, to be achieved if all large, new facilities are fitted with flue-gas desulphurisation units and other fossil-fuel users switch to low-sulphur fuels.

  • Advantage is taken of this effect in flue-gas cleaning.

  • For sampling the gases in the smokebox of the horizontal return-tubular boiler, a special flue-gas sampler was designed, in order to obtain a composite sample of the gases escaping from the boiler.

  • The sorbents, primarily sodium bicarbonate and trona, are used by coal-fired utilities to remove harmful pollutants, such as acid gases, in flue-gas treatment processes.

  • But for some plants, the lower emissions from PRB coal could delay or preclude the need to install flue-gas desulfurization FGD equipment at some power plants.

  • MBD is regarded as being at the forefront of solutions for stationary industrial emitters such as power stations, smelters and refineries - that securely and efficiently convert captured flue-gas emissions into oil-rich algal biomass via proprietary systems.

  • After the conference, an OriginOil team traveled to Tarong Power Station, near Brisbane, where they paced the new industrial demonstration site that MBD is now building to capture flue-gas CO2 from the coal-fired power plant.

  • Filed with the NCUC a plan to retire by the end of 2017 the 11 remaining North Carolina coal-fired units that do not have flue-gas desulfurization controls (scrubbers).
