Abstract

Sulfur is the element most frequently cited in discussions of emissions from coal combustion or conversion. In pulverized coal combustion, the coal utilization technology for the electric power industry today, the emission SO2 is directly related to the sulfur content of the coal. Many utilities place a premium on low sulfur coal for the purpose of meeting SO2 emission standards. But is low sulfur coal a panacea for pulverized coal combustion? In practice, no. In fact, a few utilities have added sulfur oxides to the feed stocks for the purpose of overall compliance with both sulfur and particulate emission standards.
