The LABSORB process is a regenerative wet scrubbing process for the removal and recovery of SO2 from flue gas and process gas flows at petroleum refineries, metallurgical plants, power generation facilities and industrial plants.
This patented process removes SO2 from a gas flow for emission control, while minimizing the costs of wet scrubbing.
With LABSORB the scrubbing reagent (buffer) is regenerated for reuse while at the same time recovering a high concentration stream of SO2 (90+%) as a byproduct for use in other processes. The recovered SO2 can be used as additional process feed for existing sulfur recovery units (SRU) and/or sulfuric acid plants. With further processing it can be sold as commercial grade liquid SO2, sulfuric acid or elemental sulfur, all products widely used in the fertilizer, refining, chemical, pulp and paper industries.
The process is highly flexible and can be used to remove SO2 from various flue gas sources while meeting the most stringent emission regulations. LABSORB is most economical when cleaning flue gases with high SO2 concentrations, the higher the SO2 level, the more it saves.
