    4/9/2019

    Power plants and refineries around the world must manage and treat complex effluent waste streams from the Flue Gas Desulfurization (FGD) process. Flue gas is generated by the combustion process of fossil and fossil-derived fuels, such as coal, oils, and natural gas in power plants. Petrochemical refineries may generate flue gas from a number of different processes, including Catalytic Cracking, Steam Methane Reforming, and Heaters or Furnaces.
