Wet lime scrubbing | EMIS

During wet lime injection, a slurry of limestone (CaCO 3) is sprayed into the spray column. The presence of SO 2 causes gypsum (CaSO 4.2H 2 O) to be produced. Originally, the process was made up of two absorbers and an oxidation unit. SO 2 and limestone are absorbed in the
