Deliverable B.3.4 - Environmental and Techno-economic analysis

Completion Date: 30.12.19

In this report, a comprehensive techno-economic analysis of FGD pilot plant operation is conducted in order to assess the sustainability of proposed operation scenarios, largely based on the appropriate fuel mix used at the rotary kiln level. Base data are analysed and a case study is selected. A reference mode of operation is chosen to serve as a sustainability indicator, i.e. an equivalent plant operating with a market benchmark FGD grade calcium hydroxide. Moreover, the effect of by-product valorization rate on sustainability is shown. The report concludes with an environmental analysis specifying the relative merits of the technology and its circular economy character.
