Abstract

Sodium bicarbonate has been identified as one of the most efficient reagents for flue gas desulfurization. Sodium bicarbonate has been demonstrated both in bench scale and large scale applications by a number of researchers globally. Scattered reportings of plume discoloration during demonstrations of sodium bicarbonate injection have been attributed to the formation of the reddish-brown gas, NC^. To aid potential users from violating opacity regulations, impetus for further study of this extremely viable technology has been prompted. The purpose of this study was to compare the surface area changes of sodium bicarbonate during flue gas desulfurization (FGD) as it relates to the formation of NC^. The results o
