Advanced flue gas cleaning systems for sulfur oxides (SOx), nitrogen oxides (NOx) and mercury emissions control in power plants

S. Falcone Miller and B.G. Miller,     The Pennsylvania State University, USA


This chapter discusses current and future control technologies for sulfur oxides, nitrogen oxides, and mercury in the power generation sector. Current control technologies addressed focus on flue gas desulfurization technologies for sulfur oxides, selective catalytic reduction, selective non-catalytic reduction, and hybrid technologies for nitrogen oxides, as well as powdered activated carbon injection for mercury control. Future control technologies for nitrogen oxides and mercury capture are discussed.
