High Efficiency and Availability
The EEC CDS® System utilizes a dry circulating fluid bed and an ESP or Fabric Filter for utility scale flue Gas Desulfurization. Featuring the capability of very high removal efficiencies, high availability and low maintenance, this system was awarded the 1995 ABMA (American Boiler Manufacturers Association) Public Service Award for Energy and Environmental Achievement.
Proven Electric Utility Operating Experience
Originally licensed from Lurgi, this technology has demonstrated the ability since 1987 to meet 97% SO2 removal on 6% sulfur coal while maintaining 98% availability. With five systems operating in Europe and two systems designed and supplied by EEC in the U.S. successfully operating since 1995, this technology has established itself as the leader in low maintenance, high efficiency FGD systems.
The Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) sponsored a FGD Study that compared the EEC CDS® to fourteen other wet and dry FGD processes installed on a 300 MW boiler at 65% capacity factor. The result -- the CDS® showed the lowest combined life cycle capital and O&M costs.
The EEC CDS® can be retrofitted to almost any utility plant because it uses minimal plant space and offers flexible equipment locations. The system also has a short (18 - 24 months) construction schedule with minimum outage time.
