Abstract

The Ispra Mark 13A process for flue gas desulphurisation is a new process where sulphur dioxide is converted into sulphuric acid by reaction with a dilute bromine solution. The bromine is subsequently regenerated by electrolysis. The process does not consume reagents, it produces hydrogen and sulphuric acid, both valuable products and it does not generate waste solids or liquids. In 1985 a contract was signed for the construction and operation of a pilot plant where the European Commission participates financially in the project to a maximum of 5 millions ECU. The plant is designed for a throughput of 32.000 m3/h of flue gas with SO-2 contents up to 4500 mg/m3. The degree of desulphurisation has to be higher than 90%.
