FGT - FGD Services

The flue gas desulphurization technology, known as FGD, is the process of separating sulfur dioxide (SO2) from the flue gas discharged from the fossil fuel-fired thermal power plants. In many countries, deterrent laws are in force today, as sulfur dioxide, the cause of acid rain, is eliminated from the emissions of thermal power plants.

The average improvement of the FGD system to sulfur dioxide emissions of thermal power plants is usually about 99%. The FGD system, which shows differences in application care, is basically divided into wet FGD (wet FGD) based on oxidation of gypsum and dry FGD (dry FGD) using dry sorbent injection.

The advantages of this process include the high SO2 recovery in wet type FGD systems, the wide applicability of absorption chemistry and the lack of extensive knowledge in the management of the chemical process. For this reason, the most common flue gas treatment system. The wet FGD system by-product is a dry, powdery solid residue and can also be used as filler material (e.g. Road) after stabilization depending on its components.

Dry type FGD system is preferred because of low investment capital and energy cost, less space requirement and saving on water usage. As Sintek Madencilik, we are able to work on both types of flue gas treatment systems by taking the current situation of the companies into consideration.
