Use Of limestone resources in fluegas desulfurization
In 1994, more than 41 of the approximately 160 coalfired, electrical power plants within the sixstate Ohio River Valley region used fluegas desulfurization (FGD) units to desulfurize their emissions, an approximately increase over the number of plants using FGD units in 1989. This increase represents a trend that may continue with greater efforts to meet Federal Clean Air Act standards.
