Abstract

Advanced flue gas desulphurization and NO% reduction technologies are analysed and compared with respect to technical parameter, costs and operational experience. Their market penetration in European OECD countries is determined. 1 Introduction The detrimental effects of acidifying air pollutants on European ecosystems which were recognised in the late seventies led to the elaboration of international agreements such as the UN/ECE Helsinki protocol on sulphur (1985) or the Sofia protocol on nitrogen oxides (1988) and of national regulations to reduce the emissions of sulphur
