This report is a resource document for the development of Federal standards of performance for control of sulfur dioxide emissions for new industrial boilers. It presents capital and annualized costs for SO2 control technologies applied to coal- and residual oil-fired industrial boilers. Control costs are presented for model boilers with heat input capacities of 100, 150, 250, and 400 million Btu per hour firing fuels with various sulfur contents and achieving 50, 70, and 90 percent SO2 reduction using flue gas desulfurization systems. The cost algorithms used to calculate these costs are also presented.
