Abstract

This paper presents the estimation of a long-run average cost curve for the flue gas desulfurization of coal-fired electric generating plants. Long-run average costs are shown to decline asymptotically with the level of sulfur dioxide removal and to decline with the sulfur content of the coal burned. © 1988.
