Flue Gas Desulphurisation (FGD)

Flue Gas Desulphurisation (FGD) FGD is a process that can achieve SO 2 removal with more than 97% capture efficiency. The process and system parameters require a variety of reagents like lime, caustic, ammonia, sodium bicarbonate. A Flue Gas Desulphurisation (FGD) system is majorly available in three variants – Wet Flue Gas Desulphurisation ...
