Today, Flue Gas Desulfurization (FGD), the process which reduces the amount of sulfur dioxide released into the atmosphere, is increasingly regarded as one of the most critical in modern coal-fired power plants. This is due primarily to the implementation of strict regulatory requirements across many countries as part of the global drive towards reducing emissions. Whilst coal use is declining as part of the fossil fuel mix in many parts of the world, emission control systems such as FGD play a vital role in countries where it is still utilised.

With the process experiencing severe exposure conditions and risk of corrosion due to the presence of hot acidic gases, we look at how vinyl ester resins can provide the robust chemical and temperature resistance necessary to ensure optimum performance, protecting this critical unit from corrosion and potential loss of availability.
