United States Limestone in Flue Gas Desulphurisation Market Report and Forecast 2022-2027
According to Expert Market Report’s latest report, ‘United States Limestone in Flue Gas Desulphurisation Market Report and Forecast 2022-2027’, the United States limestone in flue gas desulphurisation market attained a volume of about 5064.5 KMT in 2021.
Flue gas desulphurisation is defined as a process of removal of sulphur oxide (SOx) gas from the deep areas such coal-fired power plants or thermal plants. This process is carried out by bringing the flue gas in close contact with a slurry containing an additive in the absorption zone. Limestone is added continuously to the absorber sump to ensure efficient cleaning of the flue gas. The applicability of limestone in the wet lime scrubbing method. The sulphur dioxide is absorbed into the spray and then precipitated as wet calcium sulphite.
The limestone in flue gas desulphurisation market in the United States of America is being driven by the stringent government standards against the emission of sulphur oxide, as the compound is a major source of air pollution in the country. In addition to this, the growing use of limestone by United States flue gas desulfurisation (FGD) system, owing to the mandated reduction of SO2 from coal-burning power plants in the country is anticipated to augment the market in the forecast period. The rising demand for limestone in the wet lime scrubbing and dry lime scrubbing processes in the country is significant. Also, limestone is economical and easily available. This factor will diffuse economic awareness among the population. The increasing demand for electricity, coupled with the rising investments in the thermal power plants in the United States, is likely to provide lucrative opportunities to the market.
