Using sugar factory carbonation lime for flue-gas desulphurization. (In French). J.-C. Dolignier and G. Martin. Oil Gas Sci. Technol. (Rev. Inst. Francais Petrole), January-February 1999, 54(1), 95--103.
Details are reported of a study undertaken to demonstrate that sugar factory carbonation lime can be used as a desulphurization agent in the Aude boiler, which is a new combustion apparatus designed to use high sulphur fuels. Both laboratory tests and those on a near-industrial-scale 10 MW boiler have been conducted. Sugar factory carbonation lime provides greater desulphurization efficiency than that obtained using finely crushed natural limestone. Schematic illustrations, graphs and tabulations are presented and discussed. 11 refs.
