dc.description.abstractThis paper investigates the costs associated with the current operation using a lime scrubber and compares those costs with the conversion to a limestone scrubber. The conversion to limestone impacts several key costs that affect the cost to generate a megawatt-hour of electricity. Replacement costs for equipment and expected savings in disposal and operational costs are compared to the existing operational costs. Additionally, a typical business case was developed to project the expected cost savings and the expected internal rate of return on the capital expenditure.
