China Is the Center of the World’s FGD Market

The top five Chinese FGD companies installed more FGD scrubbers last year than exist in any country of the world except the U.S. and Germany. In the next five years, China will install more scrubbers than have been built in the last forty-five years in the U.S. This is the conclusion reached by the McIlvaine Company in its continuously updated FGD World Markets report.

Most of the installations utilize limestone as the reagent. However, units installed in the western regions where water is scarce are opting for dry systems using lime. Earlier systems used heat exchangers to raise the exhaust gas temperature to 50oF above saturation. The latest systems have wet stacks with a steam plume and no heat exchanger.

Components and designs are combinations of international and domestic products. In fairness to the Chinese, there is more international inclusion than there was in the FGD surges in any other region. The U.S. was first and used its own designs. Japan was next, but chose to ignore the U.S. options. Germany was next and opted mostly for their own designs with some partnerships with U.S. and Japanese companies.
