Contribution of the process of desulfuration of flue gases in the TPP Ugljevik to environmental protection

  • Thermo power plant TPP Ugljevik for the production of electricity use brown coal with a high content of sulfur (about 5%). As a product of combustion of coal, beside other pollutants, is sulfur dioxide which is dangerous for environment and human health. The concentration of sulfur dioxide in flue gases is about 25000 mg/Nm3. This concentration is 62,5 times higher then permitted concentration (by European Union). The work contain data of sulfur dioxide which TPP Ugljevik are emitted during one year, the data of concentration in air of sulfur dioxide in location of TPP Ugljevik and city Ugljevik. The paper considered influence of emitted sulfur dioxide on environment, materials, cultural heritage and human health. On the other hand paper considered advantageous consequences for environment, materials and human health which will bes after introduction of the process of desulfuration of flue gases in TPP Ugljevik. The process of desulfuration is very important for reduction of trans-boundary transport of sulfur dioxide because of very high chimney (310 m) and the dispersion of gases at very high altitude and transport them in the neighbors countries.
