Addition of metal chelates to the liquor in a wet stack gas scrubber to improve removal efficiency of both NO and SO2 may provide a new environmental control technology without requiring major capital modification to existing power plants. Criteria for an effective metal chelate additive include large absorption capacity and rapid binding rate for NO and rapid regeneration of metal chelates from nitrosyl metal chelates by reaction with absorbed SO2 in aqueous solutions. Data on the… CONTINUE READING
