An evaluation of the direct cost of abatement under the main desulfurization technologies, Energy Sources,17(4): 391-412, 1995

Evaluation of the direct cost of abatement under the main desulfurization technologies, Energy Sources 17(4): 391-412 (SCOPUS, ISI Listed. Impact factor: 0.555 and 5-year: 0.576) (1995).

This study summarizes the available information on the technical characteristics and costs of those sulphur abatement technologies in operation at present or coming into operation in the near future. Relying on disaggregated source data and using engineering cost functions and various technical and economic assumptions, the least cost curves of sulphur abatement for all the European countries have been derived and some examples are presented. Finally, a sensitivity analysis of abatement strategies and costs to some alternative assumptions about energy futures is presented.
