Abstract

In the industrial practice of gas treating, removal of one or more components of a gas stream by means of a chemically reactive liquid is almost always accompanied by a process which regenerates the rich liquid solution by stripping out the absorbed gas. The only important exception is flue gas desulfurization, where, often the product of the reaction (usually calcium sulfite and sulfate) is simply disposed of as waste; however, also for flue gas desulfurization processes where a regeneration step is included, such as the Wellman-Lord process, are in common industrial use.
