Concern about the destructive effects of air pollution on man's ecosystem is increasing. The two most important contaminants occurring in the largest concentrations and quantities are sulphur dioxide and nitrogen oxides. Both pollutants are formed mainly during the combustion of fossil fuels. This paper describes the applications of various measures to reduce emissions from stationary sources, in particular power plants. Sulphur dioxide abatement, flue gas desulphurisation, nitrogen oxide abatement and combined SO(2)/NO(x) removal are all discussed.
