Flue Gas Desulfurization Systems Industry Background

Flue gas desulfurization or FGD is the technology used to remove oxides of sulfur from combustion flue gases of power plants and other industrial processes that burn oil or coal to produce steam for process heating and electricity generation. An FGD system utilizes an alkaline sorbent to contact the flue gases to remove SOx. Growing electricity demand coupled with tightening of emission norm will drive the global market size in the coming years.
